The No. 1A AUTOGRAPHIC KODAK JR. was a folding camera for type 116 Autographic film. It was made in Rochester, NY, USA by Eastman Kodak Company and by Eastman Kodak Company, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This "Autographic" camera was an updated version of the No. 1A Kodak Junior which was launched in 1914 but did not say "Autographic" on it. Various versions were produced with different wording on the parts and the viewfinder was sometimes directly above the lens and sometimes offset to the side.
