Company History:
Thornton-Pickard Ltd was a well known British camera manufacturer established in 1888. The company was an early pioneer in the development of the camera industry.

The Thornton-Pickard company was founded by John Thornton and Edgar Pickard in Manchester, in 1888. The innovative "Time & Instantaneous" shutter was designed and patented by Thornton in 1892.

This shutter design was also licensed to a number of other camera makers.

Following the death of Edgar Pickard in 1897, Thornton found himself in a company dominated by the Pickard family, whom he disliked intensely, and shortly afterwards he left, forming a new company called the Thornton Film Company. In 1913 Thornton emigrated to the United States, and went on to patent a three-colour cine film that was manufactured under license by Eastman Kodak.

Thornton-Pickard's successful "Imperial Triple Extension" model was introduced in 1913 and during the First World War, the company produced a number of cameras for military use and particularly for the Royal Flying Corps, including the Hythe MkIII Gun Camera.Cooke Anasteigmat Lens Design:
Designed by Harold Taylor, of Taylor, Taylor and Hobson Ltd, the Cooke Anasteigmat Lens proved to be an influential design and was copied by other makers including Voigtlander and Zeiss.
