<Photographs to be added>
This is a good example of the No 0 Folding Pocket Kodak, albeit with some wear to the leather covering. This is the first model - only some 5000 were produced, and this is one of the last made before the Model AB was introduced.
It came with its slip case, though this has suffered wear and needs to be repaired to prevent it falling apart.
It is possible to collect a number of variations of this form of camera, particularly if you include the original and other formats such as the No 1 Folding Pocket Kodak and the No 1A Folding Pocket Kodak. They could make quite a display all on their own! Many are not too hard to find, although this size does not turn up quite so frequently as the larger formats.
