Thornton-Pickard Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (Altrincham, Cheshire, U.K.)

Mousetrap Shutter with Aluminum Body - c. 1905

Notes:  Thornton-Pickard made a relatively large number of mousetrap shutters that have survived on or with American view cameras.  The vast majority of them are mahogany and brass, rather than this one, which has a body formed out of aluminum (or perhaps I should say aluminium, considering that it was made in the U.K.).
