    Another little piece I picked up from the Rose Bowl. It came with the box which will be seen in pt 2.
    This is the Spartus Folding Camera Model No. 5-500. I have a standard sized deck of card to show the size. The dimensions are 5 1/2" x 2". It used a film called No 127 which is said to take full size 1 5/8" x 2 1/2" pictures. I figure that is the negative. I am not sure how large the prints were. Actually I am not sure how that worked in the long ago.
    Just found out this had a stand built in so I had to take a couple new pictures tonight. Using a much smaller digital camera though.
