The No. 9 Folding Pocket Ansco was manufactured by Ansco in circa 1906. This model accommodated those interested in a larger negative for landscapes and panel portraits. It is also the right size for post cards. The camera was made of well seasoned mahogany wood polished and covered in black seal grain leather. The metal parts are heavily nickel plated and polished. It was fitted with a Rapid Symmetrical lens with a 6 1/2 inch focal length and a Cyko Automatic time and instantaneous shutter. Other features included a brilliant reversible finder, noiseless key winding, rack and pinion focusing, an improved spool-holding arrangement, and two tripod sockets. The camera was capable of capturing six or ten 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch exposures on Ansco no. 18A and 18B film or equivalent Kodak no. 122 roll film. An Ansco dry plate attachment holder was available as an option. The camera measures 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches and weighs 35 1/2 ounces. The No. 9 Folding Pocket Ansco camera was originally priced around $20.00.
