Century Camera Co., Rochester, NY

Date Introduced: – ; Years Manufactured: c. 1906
Construction: rear focus via rack and pinion (two gear tracks on top of base rails), three-piece lensboard
Materials: cherry base and camera body
Sizes Offered: at least 6.5×8.5
Notes: The Century Camera Co. was founded in 1900 – hence the name.  George Eastman acquired a controlling interest in the company in 1904, and it became the Century Camera Div., EKC in 1907.  The Victor View does not appear in the 1901-1905 nor in the 1907-1910 Century catalogs but does appear in the 1906 catalog.   It was a less expensive camera than the Century No. 1, which itself was less expensive than the Century No. 2.  The above camera may or may not be the Victor, but its hardware is marked “Century”, and it is certainly not one of the front and back focusing models.  The wood is cherry – cheaper than mahogany.
