Coronet Alliance

Postby Daniel C » Thu Mar 12, 2015 5:47 am

This box camera, manufactured by the British manufacturer Coronet and distributed in France by the French company Tiranty shows the English and French flags on its front face. Its name: "Alliance", probably commemorates some sort of commercial treaty between the two companies.
This box camera is dual format (6x9 cm and 4.5x6 cm) using a mask. It has been found in France and I do not know if it has been also marketed in the UK.

Concerning the release of this box on the market, sources are giving very different dates (from c1930 in the McKeown to 1955 in some websites!) and I am trying to find a source document, i.e. a catalog or an advertisement stating something more accurate.
