N.P.A. CAMERA VARIATION 4 WITH ANTHONY'S STEREOSCOPIC SHUTTER
E. & H.T. Anthony & Company, New York 1900 - 1901
Anthony N.P.A. Camera Variation 4 equipped with Anthony lenses and an Anthony Stereoscopic Shutter. Although unmarked and unnamed as such by Anthony, I've called this "Anthony's Stereoscopic Shutter" pending better information.
This N.P.A. Variation 4 has two wheel stop lenses marked "E. & H.T. Anthony & Co., Single Achromatic", and the camera's ivoroid maker's tag reads "E. & H.T. Anthony & Co., New York and Chicago":
Anthony's catalogues for 1900 and 1901, both depicted and offered this Anthony stereoscopic lens and shutter configuration for their Champion and O.N.A. Equipment outfits, but don't indicate it as being available for the N.P.A. Camera. However, this N.P.A. Variation 4, only offered for 1900-1901, is shown here equipped as such.
Although a turn-of-the-century piece, its stereo lenses and simple wood-encased shutter makes it look much older. In this configuration, the N.P.A. is an attractive Anthony camera that's almost never seen today.
