Lovely work, Gilbert. And I've just made a cameraman and camera like that for a litle diorama of the Spitfire Prototype's first flight. They certainly had those cameras here in the thirties.

Not splitting hairs and pointing fingers, I was just curious about the camera, as I have a working Speed Graphic 4X5 format camera from the late 30s and I notice stuff like that...
