Alpha De Luxe Camera by Watson & Sons

datasheet_loginThe Alpha De Luxe Camera was manufactured by W. Watson & Sons as a continuation of the Alpha no. 1 starting in approximately 1909. It was a simplified version of the Alpha No. 1 camera for use on either a tripod or hand. It continued the design of being a self contained camera within a strong box. This camera was constructed of well seasoned mahogany covered with leather and the external metal fitting finished in black and internal brass. Features included a double extension bellows with rack and pinion focus adjustment and infinity stops, front and back swing, rising front, reversible back, a reversible brilliant finder, a circular level, focusing scales and tripod sockets. Made in three sizes, a quarter plate, a 5 x 4 inch and a half plate. Priced at £8 8 0, £9 10 0 and £10 17 6 respectively.
