Lawrence of Arabia's Archaeological Camera

T.E. Lawrence ordered this camera from J.H. Dallmeyer in 1910 for his archaeological photography at Carchemish in Syria. The camera's versatility (including full movement of lens panel and accommodation for wide-angle lens) was well suited for this work. These quarter plate hand cameras were popular with amateur photographers.
