Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

I found the Shay photos more easily than I expected! Originally taken in 1983 on Agfa CT18 film with my OM-2SP, probably with the Zuiko 35-105 lens.

Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Time to tone this thread down a bit, I feel. Please keep comments polite and respectful - and no analogies to Hitler, Nazis or Fascism, oblique or otherwise.

I'm trying to be ultra careful how I word this as I'm aware how sensitive a topic is being discussed in some recent posts.

Re: Thornton Pickard 5x4" half-plate view camera?

The Lens Collector’s Vade Mecum has a short entry for Thornton-Pickard. They were based in Altrincham (a stone’s throw from me in Sale!). Dates are roughly 1890 to 1930.

Re: Thornton Pickard 5x4" half-plate view camera?
