Must admit to being old enough to recognise this for what it is...You have placed it in an environment that would have looked futuristic in 1951. Thanks for the memory!

It's an interesting picture anyway, but the other stuff is very effective.

These old cameras were such interesting pieces of machinery. This is a good looking one and very nicely taken. I'm not sure that oil bath is going to do it any good though. Smile
