Graflex Compact

Though it appears anything but by most standards, this is the Graflex Compact. I acquired this camera, the largest in my collection, the same weekend as I got my smallest (the Riken Steky model II).

I can’t find the minimum focussing distance anywhere. If you do, please let me know.
