Sanderson (Houghtons) | Junior | English | 5 X 4 inch Plate

HAND CAMERA. 1903. Serial number 4944 gives a date of 1903. Black-leather covering was beginning to appear alongside polished mahogany. Rather superior Taylor Taylor Hobson Convertible lens has an interchangeable rear element giving two focal lengths of F:7in and F:9in, so the Bausch & Lomb Unicum Shutter has two aperture scales, and the baseboard has two focusing scales. A very good example of its kind.
