I don't know where or when I acquired it. The bag had an
impressive coat of dust on it.
The SCC in the diamonds to the right and left of the lens stand
for Standard Camera Company
business relationship with Coronet Camera, also of Birmingham.
This, very pretty old camera, is an aberration. It has different
hardware, and unlike the standard Standard, it's black, not blue
It's miraculous that a cardboard camera could survive in such
wonderful condition after such a long time.
I put some Arista EDU 200 in it.

The No. 2 Camera's shutter operates in both directions. It trips

The shutter makes a nice hollow-box "thunk" when tripped. I could
discern no difference between the up trip and the down trip sound.
Old cameras contain a lot of air. New cameras not so
Viewfinders on ancient cameras provide the photographer with an
approximation of scene. It gets worse as the photographer and
