Korona View Camera Variation 1, 6 x 8



 

Date Introduced: - ; Years Manufactured: c. 1901
Construction: front focus via rack and pinion; double swing; reversing by removable back; three-piece lens board
Materials: mahogany wood body; red Russian leather bellows; nickel-plated brass hardware
Sizes Offered: 6x8, 8x10
Notes:

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.
