Huge thanks to rniederman for the instructions on opening. The bellows are unbroken and the wood is beautiful. Everything seems to be complete.
Inside lists patent date of 1907.

    Happy to help! The black bellows indicates a slightly later version. These cameras were made in Rochester, MN. Unmarked versions of this camera were made by Conley for Sears Roebuck & Company.

    Thanks again rniederman, a couple more questions if you would be so kind, is the glass on the back supposed to be frosted? And would you clean the cameras exterior in any way?

    rniederman, everything worked as described. How unbelievably cool. I had no idea it would be so beautiful inside, much less still function. Thanks again, again. Your website is definitely bookmarked. Your're knowledge appreciated.
