Houghton Folding Scout n°2

This camera uses  roll films or plates corresponding to the format 3 ​​1/4 x 4 1/4.
The shutter offers the bulb exposure, and the instant exposure as well as a speed "O" (perhaps O for  OPEN, a kind of T exposure).
The diaphragms disk arranged in front of the lens has three apertures marked 12 - 17 and 34 (12 for the largest)..
Horizontal and vertical drift are available.

This camera is much like that other model presented on the site. However, the plate that supports the lens/ shutter block is metallic.
