I am mulling over whether to restore this camera. It is apparently a full plate camera. It has been fitted with heavy iron grips for a monorail, I see no evidence that it ever had a solid base. It has heavy mahogany construction akin to a late 19th century studio camera. The lensboard is 3&3/4" by 5". It is missing the original ground glass (it has a later jury-rigged gg made from a plate holder). There is no identification on the camera. An Alphax shutter was mounted on the lensboard at some much later time.
