The APeM Box Camera is a basic black box camera of wooden construction, but seems to be the body shell used by a number of others (e.g. Illingworth, Thornton Pickard Puck). It carries the triangular APeM triangular badge on front face.

The film details recorded in the table above are taken from a label inside the camera.

This example shows light rusting inside and minor damage to corners - neither problem being particularly unusual in simple box cameras of this type and age.
