Here is an online site that specializes in restroing such folder cameras: http://www.certo6.com/
From the looks of your camera, it is likely a 120 rollfilm in 6x9 format. Likely an Agfa, Kodak, or one of the many, many variations that were produced in the late 1940s and 1950s. Jrgen's site has lots of information for those of you who are considering purchasing such lovely old cameras.

Dear all, NOT alt related per se but what the heck, unless film is "alt" now: This probably serves no purpose but to satisfy my curiosity. I have been going through these old family pix and have come across the camera that took a bunch of BW negs I have from my family of origin. Here are 3 shots of what is the camera. Does anyone know what camera this is and what the "number" of film it took was? It is definitely roll film. I put it on a page on my website called "Miscellaneous", where I can post a pic or two every now and then for discussion purposes, so the page is poorly done but oh well... http://christinaanderson.visualserver.com/Text_page.cfm?pID=2076 __________________ Christina Z.
