The Ansco "Pioneer" dates all the way back to 1947. This camera was made between 1947 and 1953 in Binghampton, NY. My wife found it in a thrift store, and I like the look. When I open the back to look inside there's... nothing! Not sure if it's missing parts, or is so basic it's just a light box. There's a channel along the top of the camera for a small viewfinder. The shutter release is on the right side of the lens. Push down and count to 3?!
