Thornton-Pickard | "Royal Favorite". | 1909. | Field Camera. | Half Plate.
Labelled "Thornton-Pickard Ld. "Royal Favorite" Made for Harrington & Co. Ld. Australia.", this must have travelled from Britain to Australia and back again to Norfolk, UK, where I bought it, and confirms the fact that T-P made for Harringtons. It appears to be a high class version of what they called in Britain, "The Imperial Perfecta", with extra brass trim and a geared rising front. It has the "Three Bar Front", consisting of three brass reinforcing strips, introduced in 1909.
