Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Are you still looking info for your Lancaster enlarger?
I recently aquired an 18 pages booklet/catalog on "Photographic Enlarging Apparatus" from Lancaster & Sons. Can't find any publishing date on it.
Let me know what model you have if you are interested.
I posted this so long ago I had all but forgotten about it! Many thanks for your offer, I think it is a "Cresco" vertical enlarger based roughly on a press ad I have seen that looks similar but that is about the extent of my knowledge on the thing. As of yet I have not got it working, but I have not really tried as I have been busy with other projects. any light you can shed would be most welcome
I have a receipt from Wallace Heaton of New Bond Street for my Leica IIIa and f2 Summar (I am only the second owner) and a whole lot of other bits and pieces. Amongst these is a Cresco Enlarger for the sum of £3 5/-. No enlarging lens is in the list of items bought, so I would assume the original owner intended to use the Summar lens with the Cresco.
