The last Bellows camera from the Sallies lot. The Kodak Autographic 3 would have been made between 1914 and 1926 but there seems to be many variations, this one just has "3 Autographic Kodak" embossed in the leather on the back. The way this has been made is quite amazing, the main body is wood and the backing plate steel all covered with leather. the craftsmanship is amazing. I realise there would have been a fair bit of machine production line in manufacture but also there would have been a lot hand finishing and fettling. Again I gave this a basic clean, moistened the bellows and feed the leather.
