    This is a generic field camera (Korona) made by the Gundlach Optical Company, Rochester, NY. The model is similar to the "Wizard View" (c1909) however this version is representative of a later build - possibly the mid-1920s. The front lensboard and rear assembly are not original. The camera would normally be sold with a reversing back having a ground glass viewing screen that used cut-film holders. Somewhere in this camera's history, the photographer added a rollfilm back. The Betax shutter with Radar Anastigmat lens is correct for this camera.
