    Lane & Sons, J.L.| Scott's Patent Camera.| 1887.| Whole Plate.|
    Catalogue No. 0214.
    Labelled "Made by J.L.Lane & Sons, London, for J.T.Chapman, Albert Square, Manchester.", this camera has also another, inset label saying "Scott's Patent, No. 12389". C.E.Scott, (q.v.), manufacturing in Manchester, is presumed to have made the Scott's Patent Cameras offered for sale in Chapman's 1888 catalogue, and Chapman is known to have had cameras made to his own designs, but how Lane, in London, came to be making a Scott's Patent camera for Chapman to retail in Manchester, is anyone's guess. The labelling establishes for me the fact that Chapman was buying in cameras from other than Manchester manufacturers, for retail in his Albert Square premises, to which he moved in 1883 from his Deansgate shop. The firm of "J.L.Lane" added "& Sons" around 1887, which is where I have dated this camera. (See also Scott, C.E.)
