Has anyone ever heard of a 4x5 camera made by the Poco Rem Company? It says patent 1894. Thanks, Jerry

There were lots of lightweight folding bed plate cameras made around this time coinciding with a huge vogue for cycling. Rochester made a number of models with names like poco, reko, premo etc but my personal favorite name is the Pocket Cyko.
