Gold plate folders

The Gold plate folders are Japanese folding cameras taking 6.5×9cm pictures. They were distributed from 1934 to 1937 by Yamashita Yūjirō Shōten. It is not known if they are related to the company Gold Camera Kōgyōsho. At least three models were sold, quite different one from the other. All the models were supplied with three plate holders, a film-pack adapter and a cable release.[1]
