This is a very strange little bakelite toy camera. It's from the 1940's and has a telescoping lens that you pull out to focus according to a distance scale imprinted on the lens shaft. The camera is vertically oriented which is a bit odd and hard to get used to. There is a little knob on the lens face that you have to turn to cock the shutter, then a choice of two buttons for firing the shutter, one for instant and one for time. I bought mine off Ebay and it was new in the box, never used except for display. I cleaned up the dust in the viewfinder and took it for a test shoot. Another fun one! :)
