SO here I am again after completing my Century 9A last year ( http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/showthread.php?132726-Century-9A-Restoration/page12 ) I came across an "old camera" as it was described to me, whan I finally got some pics it turns out it is an E&HT Anthony size unknown but "HUGE" was the word from the seller.
Me being me took a punt and we did a deal and an 11x14 turns up in pretty good nick really but plenty of dust and cobwebs and a few stray spiders still lodging in the bellows (I think these are originals too, bellows not spiders) The back was missing and it had a lens.
Anyway I am a fair way advanced and thought it time to post up some pics.
