I just purchased this unusual cabinet card. It has the same boy featured in fiver different angles from both sides, the back, and two different angles in the front. It was done by H ? Adams and says apparatus patented. Any information about the process, photographer, or patent is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Scottvez, you have a lot of nice photos. Do you know anything about this one?

    I am not sure if it is multiple exposures or a camera trick.

    I am not really a camera guy. If it was done through a special camera, there are some here on the site that can probably help.

    Since it states "apparatus patented"-- I would think it is tied to a camera/ camera attachment and not just multiple exposures.

    Is there a photographer city on the back?

    Thanks Scottvez, the only writing on the back is the subject's name "Harold Drake". Hopefully there is a camera expert here who can help.
