    I believe my dad referred to this as an architectural camera. I remember opening it to see the gleaming nickel-silver and deep burgundy bellows. I know nothing about this camera. There are holes in the corners of the box. I have a old EK can (dated 1961) with what appear to be parts for this camera. The winding mechanism, what look like wooden view finders, some mirror pieces, and a bunch of screws...and a black leather strap/handle with the embossing. "Eastman Kodak Co / No 4 Cartridge Kodak / Rochester NY USA". Looking at the back of this camera I can't imagine that it used a cartridge. What's with the holes?

      This is indeed a Kodak No.4 Cartridge Camera. "Cartridge" is Kodak's term for rollfilm on a spool (as opposed to a cassette or similar). The holes at the corners of the body are reflex finders. The mirrors and guts of the finders are probably the parts you have. The larger hole at the top of the body would have been a leather covered release to drop the bed. This is an amateur rollfilm camera (per se) and not an architecture specific device. The metal front standard indicates this is a post 1900 model (made through 1907 or so).

      Thank you once again !
      This piece (and the Rochester) need some TLC. They are remarkable and deserve saving.
