Date Introduced: 1908 ; Years Manufactured: 1908-c. 1912
Construction:  front and rear focus via rack and pinion (two gear tracks on top of base rails); removable, reversible back; double swing; 
Materials:  stained cherry body and base; black rubber bellows;
Sizes Offered:  5x7; 6x8; 8x10; 11x14
Notes: This model is not present in Gennert Catalog #57 (1906-7); likewise it is not present in Gennert Catalog #65 (1914-1915) and later.  Thus the 1908-c.1912 estimated run.  It appears to be identical to the Gundlach Wizard View, Variation 3.    Starting about 1903, Gennert re-sold the Seneca Improved View and the Seneca Competitor (as the New York View).  About 1908, they also re-sold the Gundlach Wizard View, Variation 2.  It is not known whether such cameras bear a Gennert  label.
