Drop Shutter - c.
Notes: This drop
shutter was associated with a Scovill Mfg. Co.
Dry Plate Outfit B (5x8). It has a square opening, rather than the
curved-end opening that is more common. Scovill catalogs of the era
mention "instantaneous drop (wood)" in a section of "Outfits for Instantaneous
Photography", and it is likely that this is an example of one, but the catalogs
do not show what wood drop shutter looks like.
