This is a very unique camera...The autograph feature was a major part of the "Vest Pocket Camera".

This particular camera traveled with a young man through his years of service to our country.

You can see by the markings that this was a long and changing road for him.

(Camp Custer 1919, SS Chicago 1919, Ascania 1918, Fort McPherson, Liverpool, Bordeaux Embkn........and more)

The Traveling Camera. What stories it could tell.

Some info I found.

The Vest Pocket Kodak cameras were a best-selling folding camera series made by Eastman Kodak (Rochester), from 1912 to 1926. They were the first cameras to use the smaller 127 film reels. A strut folding variant had a f/6.8 72mm achromatic meniscus lens, hidden behind a mask that allowed a max. aperture f/11. It had to be loaded through the top with both film spools at once. It had the small three-blade variant of Kodak's Ball Bearing Shutter No.0. Folded it was really handsome, not bigger than most modern compact cameras. Hidden behind its lens board was its brilliant finder

The Vest Pocket Autographic Kodak was a version advertised as "Soldier's camera" during WWI. It was manufactured from 1915 to 1926, sold 1,750,000 times. It was of the compact strut folding type and had the meniscus lens or a U.S.-speed 8 Rapid Rectilinear. Its camera back had an area through which notes could be written onto the paper backing of the 127 film, the "autographic" feature - invented by Henry J. Gaisman. Vest Pocket Autographic Special models were equipped with selected f/6.9 and f/7.7 lenses of Kodak, Bausch & Lomb, Zeiss, Ross, Berthiot or Cooke, mainly with the Kodak Anastigmat f/7.7 lens.
