    Wide Angle Rectilinear Set

    I picked up this whole plate wide angle rectilinear a while back and could never find anything about it. The only marking is for the Des Moines Photo Materials Co, which I'd assume to be a reseller, not the manufacturer. It consists of four lenses, numbered 1 through 4. A previous owner made up a cheat sheet of the combinations and focal length (I have yet to try it to see if it's right). Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Since there's been a lot of WAR activity today, maybe someone recognizes this lens?

    137mm at its widest, with claimed coverage of whole plate.

    Thanks,

    Thank you for the info about Willoughbys. Which other focal lengths do the combinations allow you to use?
