    Robinson & Sons, J.| Tailboard Camera. | 1880. | Quarter Plate.
    Catalogue No. 0209.
    The first Robinson in my collection comes from their Dublin address, 65, Grafton Street, Dublin, which they gave up around 1887. This, the second of my Robinson cameras, comes from Robinsons' London address, 172, Regent Street, where they are believed to have been established in the early 1870s. It came to me in a very distressed state, only part of which I have been able to remedy. The odd looking lens is engraved "No.1 Beck (Simple) Telephoto Lens, No. 165688". This will mean more to the lens collector than it does to me, but I am willing to learn if anyone offers information.
