Looking forward to better weather after a terrible winter here - my workshop flooded when the river Worth in Keighley burst it's banks on 26th December, we're still clearing up. Current rebuild project, an Erneman ¼ plate camera with lots of metal plate holders well underway. Anybody know where I can buy the really thick velvet they used as light seals? Pictures to follow. Shown here is a hand-built 6x9 field camera which will be modified to take glass quarter plates. Photo near the top of the Furka Pass (Switzerland/Italy) in 2008.
