Description

Mutograph Camera, exterior view. An early camera [1897] that relied on electricity to power its mechanism, and instead of using sprockets to guide the film through the camera, the Mutograph relied on a friction feed. In addition, the film stock, 70 mm (2¾ inches) wide, provided more than four times the image surface of a standard 35-mm frame.

Format

BW photograph, sepia tone; 8” x 6.25”
