On April 1851 he was recorded in The Photographic Art-Journal.  Doak’s Camera Stand.  The above engraving represents a new style of camera stand for the double whole size instrument, invented and manufactured by Mr. George Doak, 127 Anthony-st., New York.  A glance at it is all that is required to convince any one of its superiority for the purpose for which it is intended.  The instrument is elevated or depressed by means of the wheel C; through which the screw rod B passes.  A, is the screw for inclining the camera box to the proper angle; D, the set screw for securing the instrument at the proper height:  E, a thumb screw for fastening the top of the stand, which revolves on a pivot.  Messrs.
