    I have recently run across an old box camera from the 1920's. It says it is a model 3A made by Burke and James. I really don't know much about box cameras, even though I also own two Brownies (A brownie Box No.1 and a brownie box flash six20) that are a part of the collection my boyfriend and I have together. Does anyone know anything about this camera? The tag at the camera store labeled it as "Large Box." That doesn't really tell me much.

    Any help is appreciated :)

    The "3A" refers to the negative size which is usually 3¼ x 5½" on size 122 film. B&J made box and folding cameras in several sizes. So did Kodak and others.

    Do you have a pic of it? I've not heard of this camera, and it's caught my attention.

    Burke & James, Inc (Chicago) had a number of folding cameras of the 3A type ... though I am not sure about a box camera in 3A.

    Unfortunately, I cannot post attachments, I assume because I am a new member. If anyone could direct to another method, I have plenty of pictures of it I could post.
