This is a Graflex Speed Graphic presscamera with filmsize 4x5". It has a focal plane shutter at the back and in front there is a Kodak Supermatic shutter. Lens is Kodak Ektar. Coupled rangefinder is made by Hugo Meyer. I have dated this camera somewhere to the late 1940's. Lots more information about Graflex presscameras can be found at

Below is a picture of the Graphic Back with which I can use modern 4x5" filmholders.

Here is the side of the Speed Graphic. In the picture the front framefinder is in it's uppermost position and the GGS hood is open for focusing.
