The maker was only in business between 1895 & 1929 using the A.H.D. makers mark. So I think 1866 might be out of the question.

Not exactly a car boot sale but not a lot of difference. Ebay, in among all the crooks and shysters there are a few bargains to be had.

I bought these two oil paintings a few years back complete with frames for less than a tenner each. I know they are not good paintings but I like them.

Just a tip for anyone who wants a picture frame. Don't go to town. Have a look around a few charity shops, you may well find a suitable frame with another picture in it. You will get one dead cheap just swap the pictures.

Spot on SB, we used to get loads of them just lying around when we did the antique fairs, all they needed was a spot of glue, or a panel pin,
plus a gentle wipe over with a damp cloth.

You can never have enough kitten pictures and those two are very nice.

Thanks Denise.

Here are a couple of Kodak folding cameras I aquired a few years ago.

The one on the left is a Junior Six-20 with Twindar Lens made between 1934 and 1940, it uses 620 size film.
The one on the right is a Canadian made No. 2A Autographic Brownie with B&L Lens made in1920, it uses 116 size film and has a window in the back, along with an attached scriber, so that the photographer can write a short note onto the back of the film to identify the shot. Thus the name Autographic.

Nice one VM, I've had a few of these in my time.
I wonder why it's got 2 dates, probably the years it was manufactured.
