Soho Junior Box Camera

I recently ran into this interesting and still working camera, and although general information regarding box cameras is readily available, I am finding it difficult to pinpoint exact information on this model, this meaning year of manufacture, type of lens, f-stop, shutter speed, focal point, type of negative and possible value. It is in perfect working conditions, both viewfinders are in order, all parts are complete and undamaged, amazing to have found it in these conditions lying on a heap of rubbish on the side of the road. Anyone that could shed a little light on this topic? SoHo LTD is the manufacturer and they made cameras between 1929 and 1947, sources say ( http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Soho ), so it is vintage, not an antique as of yet. Collectiblend.com has a post on its site stating that this camera was made in 1928, so small discrepancy on manufacture date, sold for about £70. That's all the info I have been able to collect.

In my books, I do not see any box camera from Soho but only folding cameras
Could you please upload some photos of your camera in order to help for the identification?

Sorry, I thought they had loaded. Didn't know that I had to place in line.

According to McKeon's guide Soho has been the result of the Split of APM (AP&M) in 1928.
A lot of equipment manufactured by the manufacturers previously grouped to form APM were then sold by Soho
Some web sources are referring to an "APM Soho Junior box camera"
Your search for information could be therefore more successful with APM or with the name of one of the manufacturers forming APM at the time
