This phototheodolite was made by J Hicks. The Bridges-Lee phototheodolite comprised a camera set on the horizontal plate of a theodolite, with a telescope and vertical arc set on top of the camera.

Many surveys of open mountainous territory such as Canada and Switzerland were made with this type of apparatus.
