Nestled in the Vera Prasilova Scott portraiture collection is a series devoted to camera equipment and supplies. Camera enthusiasts might see another post in the following months about the more technical equipment.

Hammer Dry Plate Company box

The Hammer Dry Plate Company boxes are quite interesting. The box includes a wonderful drawing of the company with cars from the time period, roughly the late 1920s to the early 1930s. For those who haven’t seen Prasilova Scott’s beautiful portraits, they are online here.
