I have been trying to find at a decent price this streamlined old gear for years. This bakelite folding camera is scarce for two reasons. A limited number has been produced and many of them have been broken and thrown out. A friend of mine, great camera collector, used to say: The question when you take in hand a bakelite camera for the first time is not "is it broken?" but "where is it broken?" My camera has been manufactured in France by Gallus just before the WW2 and a limited release of very similar cameras were produced by Pontiac and Ebner. I could purchase this one at a very low price because the bellows was falling apart. So I bought a wreck of a Foth folding camera for nearly nothing to recover the bellows and replace it.
