VINTAGE WOLLENSAK ANSCO MODEL A CYKO AUTOMATIC CAMERA

This is a wonderful vintage large Wollensak Ansco Model A Automatic camera.   The company was founded in 1842 (pre-dating Kodak in the photography business) as E. Anthony & Co. (later E. and H.T. Anthony & Company, when Edward Anthony’s brother officially joined the business) and became the Anthony & Scovill Co. in 1901, after a merger with the Camera business of Scovill Manufacturing (Connecticut). That year the company headquarters relocated to Binghamton New York. This was already a site of one of Ansco’s  manufacturing facilities
