This is an original 1918 color print ad for cameras, shutters and enlargers by Thornton Pickard of Altrincham, England. In 1888 the Thornton-Pickard Company was founded by John Edward Thornton and Edgar Pickard of Manchester. They designed and patented the "Time & Instantaneous" shutter in 1892. When Edgar Pickard died Thornton partnered with Charles Rothwell and started the Thornton Film Company. In 1913 Thornton emigrated to the United States where he patented a three color cine film which was manufactured under license by Eastman Kodak.
