Bulmer, F. Dewsbury | Patent Reliable | English | Half Plate

ENGLISH FIELD CAMERA. Bought for spares, but resurrected from a total wreck to its present condition. The bellows were replaced as the originals had been eaten by mice and rats ... two sizes of teethmarks. Damp had loosened every joint and all had to be re-glued. Weathering had eroded the finish, which had to be redone. Bulmer was apparently a local country maker, and does not appear in any of the literature, so this could be the only remaining example of his work. I reckon it's worth the effort of saving it.
