Neat small plate camera with film pack adapter fitted (but still marked as Ernemann on the back cover). Vertical format plate camera with self-erecting lens panel. This model has the early twin finders fitted onto the front of the bed, and has radial lever focusing which, according to McKeown, sets the date to 1910 or 1911. Lens assembly was lose when it arrived, but has now been tightened.

Some odd marks on the leather and a small piece missing on the edge at the back (only really apparent when the film pack holder is removed). Metalwork is bright and in good order.
