Yes, I thought the same thing. I do think it's almost certain that Watkinson made the camera, or at a push Wilby, for Taylor's. Strange how little there is on the internet though.

I had intended to copy the two pages but it will be a few days before I get the camera set up. I have a 1/4 plate from Taylor's Drug  and have not managed to find an advert for it, they probably advertised locally or in non-photographic papers.

I found a reference to a company by the name of Solomon on www.earlyphotography.co.uk and they operated out of Guilford Street in London (no "d") but I think yours has the "d"?

I don't think it's online, Gerry. Maybe ask him to scan the page and attach to an email. Might not tell you more than he's given you already but it's something!

Hope you're well,

Gordon
