    Horne, Thornthwaite and Wood. | Tailboard Camera. | 1886. | Half Plate.
    Catalogue No.0207.
    Between its foundation in 1841, and its closure in about 1913, this triple partnership changed its name repeatedly, sometimes as above, sometimes just Horne and Thornthwaite, as Mr. E. G. Wood, a camera maker in his own right, moved, apparently amicably, in and out of the partnership. In existence from the earliest days of photography, the firm was noted for high quality products, and some of their very early cameras have a very high value indeed today. This mid-1880s brass-bound tailboard is not commonly found, and it would not be easy to find another; this is the only one I have found in more than thirty years of collecting, and I wouldn't like to take on the job of finding another.
