Cameras from the 50's and 60's

From Alan Horder (Editor), The Ilford Manual of Photography.  Essex:  Ilford Limited, 1958, 1968.

Founded in 1879, the firm was named for its original location in the London district of Ilford.  The Ilford-branded cameras were made for them by other manufacturers.  The company slumped in the 1980's, was bought by the Americans, slid into receivership in 2004, and was saved by a management buyout.  In 2015, it was sold to Pemberstone Ventures Ltd.

Below, the company's quintessentially British trademarks back in the day:
