Allen, W. | Ideal Field Camera | 1902 | English | Half Plate.
Catalogue No. 0177.
Sometimes we have to work at our collection. First picture is the camera as I found it. W. Allen of Maidenhead, Berkshire, began making this model in 1902. He was also noted for the production of quality dark slides. His method of labelling was to put his stamp directly into the woodwork; this camera and a dark slide of his of a different date, in my collection, are marked in this way. I may never know what the two notches on the front lens support arms are there for....unless someone out there can tell me.
