Field View Cameras


G. Gennert, New York, NY
Monroe and Gennert, New York, NY

Gennert catalogs were issued until at least 1921.  Prior to about 1900, Gennert had a line distinct from other manufacturers.  Starting about 1901, it appears that, instead of manufacturing their own cameras, they must have purchased or contracted for cameras to me made by other manufacturers.  For instance, the Eton is identical to the Anthony Compact View (Late), and the Montauk View, New Improved and New York Views are identical to Seneca View, Improved and Competitor View.
