Just been given an Ernemann drop plate camera from before 1919 looks like the 'Minor' model but has a better lens and shutter speeds on a dial on the front. Tried to find out more about it from McKeown's and sources on the web but not much there. (Enemann had a big factory, made thousands of cameras and eventually merged with Zeiss.) Photo to come later.
Anyone else possess similar?

Lucky you! But it seems a little ironic that you have been selling so much photographic stuff and someone gives you more! At least you should have some room for it now,

Thanks for that! I was trying to make more room on my shelves but I now have this enormous piece of photographic history, it is 6 1/2 inches tall!

Well it seems that you may have had some foresight in 'clearing the decks'. But it'd be interesting to see any results you may get.
