    At first glance this looks like a Rodenstock “folding camera”. The camera construction looks to be around 1935-ish (but I have seen very similar designs from around 1940 as well), I hope that helps. I could very well be out on the exact year, but maybe I’ve given you a starting point to research any serial numbers etc. The “Pronto” on the front is referring to a faster shutter that was manufactured around 1935.

    Looks like it, you can see the backing paper in the red window(s)

    Fully wind the film and have it developed at a lab that specializes in developing of old film. Its still possible, even with film from WWII.

    As you take out the film, keep tension on the roll or it will unwind itself. (Its not a canister.)

    Do not take the film out.
    Let a lab with dark room do it.

    Have you by chance opened the back?
    If you have then it's a moot point. The film will already be ruined.

    Will it be? The backing paper is pretty good at blocking light.

    I've lost 3 photos max when accidentally opening a 120 back.

    It's worth a shot. Suppose giving the camera to the lab is best.
