Book illustration 
Internet Archive 
Paul N. Hasluck, 1905, The book of photography; practical, theoretical and applied, (London, New York : Cassell and Co.), p. 80, fig. 158
A dark tent is also required if the work is to be done out of doors and at various places, as is generally the case. The method of fitting up a dark tent is shown by Fig. 158, in which a is the tripod, B is the carrying case, with one side b folded down to form a table ; c is the silver bath, D the remaining part of the case, folded up ; E the dark slide, G the fixing bath, and F a bag glued (or otherwise fastened to make a light-tight join) around the extreme of the inside edges. This bag may be made of two thicknesses of rubber-lined cloth. A window of ruby fabric is fitted at H. The bag is rolled back when not required, but, when in use, falls down around the operator, and may be reeved up round the waist.
