This was my first folder a few years back. Just happened on it, thought I would give it a try and that was all she wrote. Hooked for life.

Thought I would post this because you don't seem to hear much about this camera. From what little I could find out, it was Made in 1949 & 50 by Ansco in Binghamton, N.Y. it's not a rebadged Agfa. Looks more like an older Speedex the kind that were painted all black. It has an Ansco 90mm f/4.5 Anastigmat lens in a shutter of unknown origin with speeds from 1/2 to 1/400 with B and T.

I'll post a pic of the camera and a few taken with it. Most of them shortly after I got her.

I have the same camera except mine has a black top with chrome knobs. Mine has a 90F6.3 Ansco Anastigmat lens. My camera is labelled "Ansco Standard Speedex" "Made in USA". It has a shutter with 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and T. Its exactly the same camera with a different lens and shutter.

Very nice Steve. Isn't it great to get something like this out of these cameras :)

Stunning photos with that interesting folder. You've also made very nice use of the square format.
