    This was my dad's Conley camera from the 20's. It has the glass insert for the film, and I suppose it would still work fine. It's in great condition. I read somewhere that you could buy these from the Sears Catalogues, but I would appreciate any additional info. thanks!

      This looks like a "Model XV Conley Long Focus Revolving Back Camera" (~1909 to 1918 or so). Conley was based in Rochester, MN. Sears sometimes private labeled Conley cameras under the name of "Seroco" ... which is shortened for SEars, ROebuck and COmpany. However, Conley branded cameras were listed in most Sears catalogues from 1908 to 1912 (and possibly other years).

      Oops! My dad's father's camera.

      Displays beautifully ! Once I got a number of glass negatives which were probably direct printed into postcards. Loved them.
