This camera has a focusing scale with the name of the camera and initials of the company - S J L & Co - along with a patent number of 20768 (1894) which would seem to be unrelated to the camera. The company name changed in 1897 to Levi, Jones & Co., the lens dates to around 1904.

The bellows disengage from the front panel, Kinnear fashion, to close the camera.
