There is also a folding quarter-plate field camera named the Albion, sold by the high-street chemist Taylor's Drug Company Ltd of Leeds and London, at about the same time.

The Albion is a ¼-plate tailboard camera by E & T Underwood of Birmingham with reversible back and Underwood lens, c.1890. Focussing is by sliding the rear standard. The Albion is identical in appearance to another Underwood model, the "Instanto".

  • The camera pictured has an ivory plate on the top that reads: THE "ALBION" UNDERWOOD'S PATENT. Two brass triangles on the front standard sides are later replacements for the original wooden ones.
