Dawkins & Co., Birmingham | Field Camera | English | Half Plate

FIELD CAMERA. 1880. This came to me as only half a camera, labelled 'W.A. Dawkins, Edmund Street, Birmingham'. An L. Dawkins is recorded by Channing & Dunn as operating in Birmingham at the same period, but they incline to the belief that that W.A. Dawkins, and another reference they found to Dawkins & Sons, are all one and the same firm. We have commented elsewhere on the vagaries of nineteenth century labelling.
