British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I have a Hunter Penrose process/repro?  camera, with an 18" Taylor Hobson lens.
I would like to know if there is anyone on this blog that knows anything about these cameras as I am considering selling it. that is if i can lift the thing out of my studio, it weighs at least 35 kilos! are these things saleable? I have heard of people using them as coffee tables, putting plate glass on top, it has the right height for that, I have also a selection of film holders for it, made in mahogany and brass, down to 5x4 inches. What I would really like to know is, is there a specialist market for these things, and if so where?
