There were a few models called "Penny Picture" and there are some collectors generically calling these type cameras penny picture cameras.
Here is a back view of the camera. As you can see the back is designed to shift vertical and horizontal. Using a single lens. this allows the photographer to take 6, 8, 12, or 24 separate pictures on the same 5"x7" plate. The 4-tube lens set on front will give you four identical pictures on a single plate.
