PDQ  Camera Co,  MODEL  H  Street camera,   USA  (Chicago) ,  1930s
A street camera for taking passport like photos, on 2 1/2 X 3 1/2" positive papers. In fact, it is loaded with a  "paper box" which contains a roll of photo-paper (see the right photo), Turning the hand-crank releases more paper in front of the lens. After the photo is shot, the photographer pulls out a knob which activates an metal-arm that works like a cutter that cuts the exposed paper into the developing tank (bellow the camera). The photos here does not show the developing-tank which I don't have...

Based on design that one seems to be an early one,  also SER # 626 (How many were made?)
