British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

On it’s way to me is a Houghton Ensign Timber and brass hall plate camera. It was sold by Harrington’s in Australia . I am keen to get more information about this marque and type. I have found some links already.

Been thinking about a wooden tripod to suit but very expensive it seems.

Hoping for information about the camera etc.

Some company history here: http://www.earlyphotography.co.uk/site/companies1.html#H The info says that Ensign was registered as a trademark in 1902. You might like to look at the Sanderson models here: http://www.earlyphotography.co.uk/site/entry_C473.html Tripods vary in price and can be found quite cheaply at auctions but shipping can be expensive.

The other organisation which may have someone looking into Houghton cameras is here: https://www.pccgb.net/members_research.html

Thanks Paul for your kind replies to my query.
