The Companion Camera made by Parker & Co is a well made ½ plate field camera, with square section bellows. The lens board is missing. The camera is described in Channing & Dunn  in the Supplementary Listing, but with limited details.
A plate on the rear of camera identifies it by name, along with the maker's name and their address at 288 High Holborn. According to Channing & Dunn, this was their address from 1897, so hence the estimated date of the camera.
