Camera Try Out: Pocket Kodak No. 1 series II (1922-1931)

Camera try out: Pocket Kodak No. 1 series II

Another vintage camera to add to my collection. 
120 mm folding camera from Kodak. 
Produced from 1922 to 1931.
Lens: Kodak Anastigmat F-6.3 112 mm
Shutter: Kodex No.1 settings T, B, 1/25 1/50
Negative size : 6x9 cm

I did checked the bellow for any light leaks. Unfortunately it was awfully porous and worn out. 
First of all, a repair was necessary if I wanted to make any photo's with this camera. 
I gave the bellow some layers of Plasti-Dip. (some sort of liquid rubber)

First results,  (contact prints) -Ilford HP5+ 400 

Probably the light haze right in the picture was caused by the red window for framecounting.
And still some light leaks to repair.
