    Part of a family collection passed on for 3 generations now, in Mexico.
    We even have stereoscopic glass plates and viewers.

    Lens: Two, f8, c.55 mm rapid rectilinear. Fixed aperture.
    Shutter: Single-blade guillotine with capping blade. T and I setting.
    Construction: Blued metal body.
    Format: Two exposures on 45 x 107 mm plates held in a changing box, push-pull mechanism.
    Focusing: Fixed.
    Attributes: Reflecting view-finder. Opaque sighting spot with cross hairs.
    Removable changing box with manual counter.

    The Original model is distinguished by having an opaque spot view-finder for sighting. This superimposes a bright spot on the field of view. The Original model was produced until 1900 when the spot view-finder was replaced by a direct-vision version.
    The Verascope introduced the 45 x 107 mm format and formed a long line of similar stereo cameras that were still in production in the 1930s. Many different models were produced with a variety of top quality lenses. Larger sizes of 6 x 13 cm and 7 x 13 cm were also made. A range of accessories were produced for use with the camera including roll-film backs, printers, enlargers and viewers.
