I work at George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film as the process historian. So, when it came to finding just the right hood ornament for my 1919 speedster I mounted this old view finder from a silent motion picture camera of the same vintage. It's a tiny camera obscure and you can actually see the image on the focusing glass.

Can you see the image from the driver's seat? From your title I thought you were going to show us your radiator cap GoPro mount... Not a bad idea, something to do today!

You need to look straight down to see the image, so .. no you can't view from the drivers seat. And in regards to the GoPro ... hmm ... my specialty is pre-1900 photographic processes. So, that's too new for me. On the other hand, if you need a tintype of a tin lizzy .. I'm your man. ;-)

I enjoyed the George Eastman segment on TV this morning. Was it "Good Morning"? I also am glad to see another "Peerless" radiator shell. Thank you for your work and comments.

Mark, I got my Senica City View 8x10 out a few days ago. It looks like a mouse munched on the corner of my lens board. The leaf shutter on the 13" is sticking open. Bellows still good, so I I'll have a go at getting it going again!

Terry,

Dust off that camera and take one of our workshops. We have at least twenty different workshops offered this year. If you want someplace warm to go this February you can take our 8x10 dry collodion negative workshop in Yucatan ... shooting the Mayan ruins of Uxmal. Pretty neat!

Yeah, I just wish I could find film for the 1925 (according to sales receipt) brownie I display on the seat of my roadster at car shows. (sigh) But I wouldn't even know where to get dektol these days:-(

We teach how to make the silver bromide gelatin emulsion and how to coat it on flexible support. Come and take a workshop. Oh ... we'll show you how to make the developer too.
