What 5X7 Camera is this

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Anyone have any info on a 5x7 camera called Gundlach. The camera has rear tilt and swing. The front has a 3 inch rise. Red mahogany and nickel hardware. 9 inch flat bed with another 9 inches that can be added to the rear. Where and about when was it manufactured?

Gundlach bought Korona in 1896 and made cameras until 1928. They were in or near the Mecca of early American view cameras, Rochester, NY. For a little more info: http://www.fiberq.com/cam/gund.htm

Thanks to everyone who responded to my two postings on lenses and 5x7 cameras. Your e-mails were a real help. Information flows fast on the net and the body of knowledge is deep. Thanks again.
