Tiny Camera Is Built under Lens with Jewelers’ Tools
Requiring the use of jewelers’ tools and magnifying glasses in its construction, a miniature camera with parts that work, and less than an inch in length, has been made for the royal doll house of the queen of England. Three months’ continuous work by experts was necessary to complete the tiny instrument. All pieces were formed by hand and carefully checked with larger cameras to insure accurate shape. The lens is a minute disk of crystal, and the shutter may be operated the same as in the real article. A small pencil for autographing is provided in a holder on the back. The bellows can be easily opened out and folded for inserting the camera in a carrying case which has been furnished to fit it. An album, neatly bound and decorated, is also part of the pygmy photographic outfit.
