Camera used by Teenie Harris

Active selection in cart:
This Pacemaker 34 Crown Graphic camera is an open and extended field camera. It is missing a handle on its PL side, although the holes and indentations demonstrating where the handle was once attached are still present. There is a lens hood with chipping green lacquer attached to the front of the camera which shields a 135mm f/4.7 lens. The metal frame is rusting in multiple spots and the leather finish on the casing is scratched or fading in some places. The folded, leather-like material of the camera's middle body has small punctures at some of its edges but appears to be mostly whole and without cracking in the material. All hinges and screws necessary to collapse and unfold the camera appear to be in full functioning order with no visible signs of loss or severe rusting. There is engraved text encircling the lens which reads [TRADE Rapax MARK / WOLLENSKA 135MM f/4.7 W RAPTAR No 566116]. Date: 1940s. Record ID: nmaahc_2014.302.2.
