Hunter and Sands | Unnamed | Tailboard | 5 X 4 inch Plate

1874 JJ Hunter and HC Sands were trading under the name of Hunter & Sands only from 1874 to 1883, with the firm adopting different variations on the names right up to 1957. (See Sands & Hunter). This relatively simple, but nicely hand-dovetailed, tailboard camera, labelled Hunter & Sands, 20, Cranbourne St., London, appears to be an early product. It is a shutter-bottom camera, but the sliding shutter is absent. The lens is a 7.5 inch f/6.5 TTH-Cooke Series III Anastigmat No. 66769.
