General Griffith Folding Half Plate Photographic Enlarger Information

However, even at the turn of the century it was possible to buy simple daylight enlargers. This one was made by Griffin and Sons. The advert. in the A.P. read as follows:

Messrs. J. J. Griffith and Sons Ltd. have introduced an instrument which should find a cordial welcome at the hands of many an amateur who desires to make bromide enlargements without elaborate apparatus. They are inexpensive, and whilst folding into small space can be erected quickly and by one movement, there being no loose screws or bolts. .... Having set up the instrument, the user places his negative in the groove at the small end and sensitive paper in the box at the large end. The camera is then taken into daylight and exposed to the clear sky for a period varying between a few seconds and a minute or two. Upon development of the exposed paper a sharp, bright enlargement will be the result.

The price of the enlarger to take quarter-plate and enlarge to whole plate, including meral exposure shutter and achromatic lens, is 12s 6d (62p).



Camera House Price: £26.00
