    Trotter, John | Unnamed | 1880? | Field Camera | Whole Plate.
    Catalogue No. 0226.
    In their Supplementary List, Channing and Dunn (writers of "British Camera Makers", the camera collectors' best reference work), cite one known John Trotter camera, an auction item, with a plaque bearing Trotter's name, and his address at 24, Gordon Street, Glasgow. Nothing else is known. The name appears in a commercial list of 1946, listing a firm of John Trotter, Manufacturing Optician, now at 40 Gordon Street. This is an unusual design in having a screw controlled rising front adjustment. It is likely that the firm's lifetime output of cameras was very low, so this could be a very rare camera.
