1892 Combination Camera with Plate Extension by the Blair Tourograph and Dry Plate Co. It has
been a year since I posted a new acquisition and fortunately I am still acquiring interesting cameras to
share. This is a 4x5 inch rear focusing camera with its unusual plate extension back. The well made back
upsizes the format to 5x8 inches.

Rob's 21th Annual International Camera Shows - SPECIAL NOTE - PLEASE READ:I did not post 2020
and 2021 shows because many (not all) are canceled due to COVID-19. Show updates are coming in daily
and I cannot keep up with the changes. In the meantime, I kept the 2019 show list posted with active
links. Before committing to travel and attendance, I strongly suggest checking show websites links and
contacting organizers for their latest information.
My intention is to update the show list for 2022!
Comment about improving this site - Website development tools have improved greatly since this website first appeared in 1998. I last
updated this site using updated development tools roughly 11 years ago. It's now time to do it again. Sometime in 2022-23 I will perform an
update for better rendering and mobile friendliness. At 170 pages, it will be a huge task but worth it. Thanks for visiting!
