Union Portrait and View Outfit
8 x 10
Korona View Camera Variation 1, 6½ x 8½
Date Introduced: - ; Years Manufactured: c. 1901
This camera appears to be a "house" model camera offered in the 1901 Uhlman catalog. It occurs on the same page as the Universal Outfit, another house name for a Portrait and Penny Photo Outfit (5x7 studio camera with having a multiple and shifting back).
This camera appears to be identical to the Gundlach-Manhattan Optical Co. Korona View Camera Variation 1, even down to the same two sizes only manufactured. Gundlach-Manhattan probably made these cameras on contract, as well as the Universal Outfit penny picture camera on the same page that was mentioned above.
