    LF back question

    Wondering if anyone knew what camera this back went to? I tried searching a few places w/o luck.

    It's both stamped and stickered Burke and James, and measures 11 1/4 x 11 3/4. None of the usual pins, and it's pretty much flat on the back as you can see. I have two backs, and 4 plate film holders with the same kind of metal plate on the back, but no camera. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Is the B&J identification on the film holder itself, or on the larger plate to which it is attached? This device looks like a one-of-a-kind modification like some of us improvise from other camera parts.

    It's stamped right on the back itself....definately not homemade.

    See if you can dig up an old B&J catalog and find it... (I had one from the 50's, but don't know where it is...) Maybe on-line in one of the photo archives...

    Take a look there...

    If not, it's ripe for DIY pickins!!!
