This camera is in rather poor condition but it was not expensive and I thought it looked neat so I bought it. Plus last time I was there I got such a good buy I owe the guy.
On with the info I think I got everything in the subject line but anyway it is an Eastman Kodak No. 3a Pocket Camera Model B-4. The Model 3a started in 1907 and had red bellows. A red bellows camera is something for which I keep an eye out. Also I am looking for one. After 1912 it switched to black bellows. Not much of the black leather is left but it is interesting to see what the bellows look like underneath the leather covering. It is also missing the view finder.
Still it is a nice conversation piece as if I needed another. Should someone come over here there should be plenty of conversation.
