Hello all, I recently acquired a mystery 8x10 studio camera that I'm trying to identify. In my searching I stumbled across this forum and it looked like a great place to dig up some answers!
My dad (a woodworker) and I plan to restore it for display and hopefully some usage!
I haven't been able to find much on Fowler and Slater other than it was a big camera club in the 1920's.
From my research I'm thinking it might be a Burke and James? Tail board style?
The lens has me pretty intrigued as well being that is so beastly huge and apparently fast.
I've attached grid of images and here is a link to larger versions:
Any ideas on age and where I might be able to track down some further info?
Thanks for your help!
