Yes they are very nice ... when I look at the work of the photographers like Francis Frith, I think how much stuff they had to cart around to get the job done ... and the people management skills they must have had to keep the subjects ,happy , fed and compliant while process took place ...I'm not good at taking photo of people....the Lady with the shop looks like she is enjoying the attention , well done you ....

I think it had bellows on both the lens holder and the plate holder so it was possible to create an infinite number of special effects. I remember he spent 4 hours once setting up a shot of a castle and then complained bitterly when he developed the plate because you could see quite clearly both electricity pylons and the suspended cables on a hill about 10 km away. No photoshop then to edit them out. A different world.
