THE LIMIT VEST POCKET CAMERA WAS THE SUBJECT OF BRITISH PATENT NUMBER 12607 OF 25 MAY 1911. THE PATENT WAS DESCENDED FROM PATENT NUMBER 26,186 THAT WAS CARRIED BY THE SNAPPA CAMERA BUT THE DRAWINGS AND SPECIFICATION VERY CLOSELY RESEMBLE THE LIMIT. THE PATENT DESCRIBES A CAMERA IN WHICH THE LENS IS MOUNTED IN A SERIES OF CONCENTRIC TUBES AND FITTED WITH A ROLLER BLIND AND PLATE CARRIER. A MODIFIED FORM ALLOWED THE CAMERA TO BE OPERATED ONLY WHEN THE LENS WAS EXTENDED.
