The Navy used that camera as late as the 60’s to photograph and and grade surface gunnery exercises.

May years ago a father of a friend had a camera which was matchbox sized, he had to cut film down to fit it. And I have an old black and white TV which has very smooth lines and incorporated stand somewhat like the one shown - only useful as an ornament now or in a museum.

Love the emerald pocket watch🤗 Glad we don't have to haul a camera that size around today! Great inventions, very interesting thank you. Love to come back in 100 years and see what we use today will be obsolete - also what it's replaced with!

We can all laugh now at some of these devices but they were precursors to some of the gadgets that we have & use today. I wouldn't mind having that Philco tv now. I think it looks cool & I love the swivel arm. I will admit that some of these were pretty bizarre like the 20 foot long gun or the giant camera. I wonder if 100 years from now someone might be looking at the things we use every day & laughing at them.

The old gentleman appears to have a cover for his old gentleman. Budgie smugglers on the beach beware

Holland tunnel moving cage was a good idea. At queens Midtown and Brooklyn battery tunnels the Officer had to walk to where the disabled car was. The CO levels were rather high.
