Houghton Ensign Box 2 1/2

No reliable information was found on this box Houghton Ensign 2 "1/2, although there are approaching models.
Film loading is performed by raising two latches, which releases the right side that is removed and which incorporates the film holder.
The brass needle  on the front panel controls the instant / time exposure modes by moving the high position of the trigger.

The aperture setting (f32 to f11) is carried out by a rotation of the brass disc in front of the lens; there is even a position 'dust cover'!
