View Full Version : Mawson&Swan RR 7x5

My newest lens is Mawson&Swan Newcastle RR 7x5 with waterhouse stop, but no waterhouses :( Seems that they were some kind of camera makers and had lenses manufactured by some other factory. Who made lenses for them? Do anybody know?

Not a camera/lens maker - just the local Pharmaceutic business.
Mawson blew himself up on the local moors in the 1860's! But the widow remained a sleeping partner for many years. Plenty of info available through Google.
