    You need a BJP Almanacs for the relevant year of release they would have a review. I'ver just checked a 1928 copy and it's not listed, they must be erarlier as shortly after the Houghton name disappeared and the name Esign was used instead.

    Give us a clue to age and type etc.

    ok thanks for the lead... from what little ive been able to find online im lead to believe that the no 2a went into production on or about 1905. ive found a pic of a number 3 (see link) which looks almost identical. http://www.historiccamera.com/cgi-bi...&login=23klito
    its a drop down multiple plate type of camera.

    Knowing the era I've found Houghton's adverts for you from 1910
