Anthony's Clifton View Camera

The Clifton View Camera was manufactured by the E. & H.T. Anthony company from approximately 1898 to 1906. Constructed of highly polished mahogany and brass hardware. Advertised as an entirely new departure in view cameras and embodies every good feature without detracting in any way from the three great essentials of a perfect camera compactness rigidity and ease of working. Every movement is provided for and held in place by the best device that experience furnishes. There is no demand to be made upon this camera that it will not meet. It has front and back focus the latter making possible the use of extremely wide angle lenses. Features include double swing back, and double swing front, reversible back sliding and rising front, spring actuated ground glass and the front board is very large overcoming the difficulty so often experienced when it is desired to attach special lenses. Size available were 5 x 7, 5 x 8 and 6 1/2 by 8 1/2.

Anthony also manufactured a LONG FOCUS CLIFTON Especially adapted to the use of Telephoto and Other Lenses of Extra Long Focus. It combined all the advantages of the regular Clifton Camera and is the finest box of its kind in the market. Size available were 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 and 8 x 10.
