Premo film pack daylight loading film

White box printed with black ink for text and red ink borders, used for packaging Premo film packs for Premo film or plate cameras. Contained 12 cut celluloid negatives at 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 size, designed for daylight loading film exposures. The film packs were stored in an initially cardboard or metal frame that was placed in the back of the camera. The user pulled a paper tab to advance a fresh film into place for each exposure and move the exposed film to the back of the pack. "Each of the paper tabs, which protrude through a slot in the camera and were torn off after being used, had a number on it which acted as a basic, though perfectly efficient, exposure counter."
