The optician firm of J. Lancaster was founded in 1835 by James Lancaster, in Birmingham, England. In 1871, in order to reflect involvement of James' son William, the company was renamed to J. Lancaster & Son. Most likely the company started manufacturing cameras in 1877. In 1905 the company became J. Lancaster & son, LTD. Thirty years after death of James, in 1955, the company ceased its activity.
