Any spelling or typographic errors in this index are likely to be attributable to me rather than to the author of the original work.
Should you identify any errors or omissions in this index, please let me know and I will endeavour to address them in a future version.
The corrections and comments noted in the table below are based upon a list first published in Issue 12 of Photographica World (Feb 1980), the publication of the Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain (http://www.nanites.co.uk/pccgb/index.htm) and the information is reproduced here with kind permission of the PCCGB.
Comments shown in “[ . ]” are my own additions.
The following list is a compilation of two members’ observations on Holmes' book, An Age of Cameras.
“The metal bodied hand and stand cameras . are all of European
Origin”. What about the Soho (Kershaw) Precision?
“The smallest 'Hand and Stand' cameras are 2¼ x 3¼ negative size”.
Should not this be 2½ at 3½ which is the size of the plate? 5 x 4 is referred to later.
The camera in the centre bottom row is listed as a Kodak Jiffy. It is a Bantam f5.6.
Altiflex was not made by Schneider, but by Emil Hofert; note the EHO on the hood. It was imported by E. H. Schneider of Farringdon Street, London, E.C.4. See for example the BJA 1939, pp655-665.
Welta’s 3¼ x 2¼ TLR was the Superfekta, contemporary with the Perfekta shown in Auer. The Weltaflex was twenty years later. See A.P. Camera Guide 5.6.57.
Ensign Carbine. Most were made in Walthamstow.
[The reviewers' comments seem to suggest that most Carbine cameras were made in the UK, taking issue with the statement in the caption by the photo on p102 that states that it was "probably of continental manufacture". In a sense the reviewers and the author are both correct - the style of early Carbine shown in the photo in An Age of Cameras would have been made in Germany by Huttig or later (after the merger) by ICA. I believe the photo shows a Huttig Lloyd camera, albeit that it carries a Carbine badge. Of course the reliance upon German imports ceased as the First World War approached, when Butcher and Houghton combined their manufacturing resources and expanded their range in the coming years, continuing to use the Carbine name.]
“New rimset Compur appeared in 1925”. BJA 1930 is the first mention of the rimset Compur.
Ensign Midget – “There were two models”. There were three standard models and one special (Ensign Catalogue 1935).
Model 55: Anastigmat f6.3 lens, focus to 3 feet.
“Blocknotes” is simply French for “notebook”.
Makina was first introduced in 1911 in the V.P. size. The 6 x 9 model followed in 1920.
“Most of these early models were fitted with an Elmax lens”. The earliest Leicas had no name on the lens.
The Elmax was not similar to the Elmar or the Tessar. It was a 5-glass lens.
“The longest lens before 1939 was a 200mm”. Morgan and Lester show a 400mm Telyt in BJA 1939, p286.

IMPROVING BREEDING OUTCOMES FOR BUDGERIGARS Notes from a lecture by Dr Rob Marshall BVSc(Hons) FACVSc(Avian Health) Lecture given at Wynnum approx 5 years ago and reprinted for the benefit of our newer members Rob Marshall does not and never has bred budgerigars. He has bred and raced pigeons since he was eight years old. When the budgerigar was imported from England, RM’s clients came t
