Equipment Exhibited

in EPS 1890 Exhibition

In the 1890 EPS Exhibition, E Lennie exhibited some interesting equipment:

-  a globular lens filled with water

-  some curved plates for taking negatives

-  a bent bath and printing frames

I don't know the relationship between E Lennie and the Lennie business at 46 Princes Street, but it seems likely that these exhibits may have come from the stock of photographic equipment held at the shop.
