Premium Camera for The Standard Tobacco Co. Ltd. London. Original orange ENSIGN carton used to supply the camera, which identifies The Standard Tobacco Company as the source.
Date of 5 July 27 is stamped on the box over an original sixpenny stamp. Address label on same end of carton to an address in South Hackney, London.
The handle is a little dry and worn, but intact. The covering on the camera body is sound, but the rear access door is slightly warped. It has a nice clear film label inside the rear door.
This is one of several common box cameras that were made by Houghton-Butcher for use as premium cameras. For example, compare it to the "J-B" Ensign.
