    These are only snapshots, but I thought that all you camera buffs would like to look at them. We went to a place called Laws Railroad Museum in Bishop, CA today. One of the old buildings was a 'camera hut' :mrgreen: The whole (small 1 room) building was full of them. And movie cameras too. Probably another 50 cameras and 30 video cams that I couldn't get pictures of because of the glare. You can see some of them in the bg in pic #4. They were all behind glass with the sun coming in behind me through the window, so there was glare from hell. Sorry, did my best :confused:

    I've got some more of the old print presses from as far back as 1885. And a shot of an old photo album. I'll get em up soon. Again, they're all just quick snaps, but they're a part of history.

    Here's the print presses and the photo album. All of those drawers are full of the actual stamps of letters and numbers for doing the newspapers. Thousands of them! All done by hand :hail:

    Wow. What treasures!
    Despite the "glare from hell" that you are talking about, these all came out very nicely and do form a story which I enjoy.
    And, heehee, best bit is: I can see you and most of all Sicily and Davin in the Photos 1 and 5 :D. (Makes me long for an updated photo of Davin, mind, for he "hides" a bit into his mom's shoulder here...)
