Trotter, John | Unnamed | Other | Whole Plate

FIELD CAMERA | 1880?: In their Supplementary List, Channing and Dunn cite one known John Trotter camera, an auction item, with a plaque bearing Trotter's name, and his address at 24, Gordon Street, Glasgow. Nothing else is known. The name appears in a commercial list of 1946, listing a firm of John Trotter, Manufacturing Optician, now at 40 Gordon Street. This is an unusual design in having a screw controlled rising front adjustment. It is likely that the firm's lifetime output of cameras was very low, so this could be a very rare camera
