Established in the 1877, primarily plate and chemical makers, however for a time in the 1880s and 1890s advertising cameras. Not sure to be the actual manufacturer (ref. British Camera Makers). It could have been made by W.Morley, London, check out the many similarities to
Rob Niederman's Morley wet plate camera.
