British Agifold square frame 1950 folding camera. Made by Agilux, in Purley Way, Croydon. They made aerial photography cameras for the RAF during the 2nd world war, and consumer cameras like this one during the late 40s and early 50s. A fairly basic model- later models have a rangefinder.

With purchase tax ( 40%!) this cost almost 18 pounds in 1950.

This has a red and a green window on the back. Red for negative film, green, I assume for slide film.
