Scope and content

Item consists of an early Jiffy Kodak Six-20 featuring a decorative front plate with art deco design. Folding camera with spring-loaded bellows in black leatherette case with a rectangular, lined metal plate into which a Twindar Lens is attached. Camera back removes for insertion of a 620 film pack. The focussing scale is somewhat limited in that it is only marked at the extremities of its travel, near focus being '5 to 10 feet', the other being 'Beyond 10 feet'. The camera seems to have an unusual support foot, in that it is adjustable to a different length. This however, is actually the aperture slider, which is very easy to miss due to the fact that there are no markings whatsoever.
