Not many cameras are known by Whetter but another almost identical camera does exist by him. The repeating back was probably bought-in as the finish and construction is different to the camera body. Similar backs were sold by Fallowfield who specialised in this branch of photography in the mid 1890s. The plate size is achieved by cutting a half-plate into three. From around 6 feet a 'head and shoulders' portrait fills the frame.
