Description

Before the advent of bromide paper in the 1890s, large photographs were generally made by contact printing from large negatives produced in large cameras. Horizontal englargers such as this, began to be used at the end of the nineteenth century; they projected the image from a small negative onto printing paper held in an easel. Made by Lancaster of Birmingham.
