Description

Original Stereo Weno model, marked with the Blair Camera Co name on the back and on the shutter face plate.  Leather covered wood body in horizontal format.

The camera is in good condition, though showing signs of age and wear.  The leather over release button is failing, but is still in place - a common problem with cameras of this age.

The maroon bellows have faded to a reddish brown colour. Leather covering has taken some wear over time and has some scratches and scuffs. Handle is still intact.
