Houghtons | Triple Victo | English | Half Plate

ENGLISH FIELD CAMERA. 1900. A triple extension version of the Houghton's Victo, Cat nos. 0009 and 0010. Restored from a pretty dire condition, as received but, although the bellows are still holed, the camera displays well now. Later reference to another example shows that the brass strip I have placed above the lens panel should have been a mahogany strip, and this will be remedied, but at the time of restoration I had no access to another camera or picture for reference. I always try to make the restoration reversible.
