Can one of the Historians identify the lens board used on this camera ?
Thanks,
Charles

Well to state the obvious, it's an accessory attachment to give the venerable 2D the effect of front shift.

I suspect this is a third party item, either home-made or "ACME" made. I would think that if a factory made this it would have used the same interchangeable lensboards found on the 2D.

The only clue to suggest it's Kodak-made is the knob found-dead center in the shadows of one of the photos. The knob is probably the lock knob for the slider because a normal 2D doesn't have a knob there. I can't rule out the possiblility that the knob wasn't scavanged by a previous owner/tinkerer, but it looks nice there.

I have never seen one of these in any of my Kodak Professinal Catalogs, though my collection is far from complete.

It arrived today, in very bad shape. According to Field cameras of the U.S. Eastman/Folmer/Schwing Eastman View #2 This one is a 7 x 11 version (with an 8x10 back) manifactured from 1921 to 1928.
