The Ansco Arrow was manufactured by Ansco of Binghamton, NY in circa 1925. This camera was made of cardboard with a wood insert frame and the back was made of metal. It was covered with a leatherette and had a leather handle with the words "The Arrow" embossed into it. The camera accepted standard 120 roll film but suggested Ansco’s 6A or 6B roll film. It has a leaf shutter with a speed of 1/50 of a second. The shutter release can go in either direction to engage. The camera had no double exposure protection and you can expose a frame as many times as you like. The Arrow also has two waist high viewfinders for portrait plus landscape. The camera is considered somewhat rare because they do not come up that often.
