WW1 Thornton Pickard Aerial Camera
Thornton Pickard Aerial Camera . WW1 , the first camera designed for aerial photography from the old Biplanes. Shaped to resemble the Lewis machine gun. I believe it would have had a round magazine on the top similar to an actual gun, though this magazine held photographic plates. An extremely interesting WW1 item. Postage on this heavy item is 20 in the UK.
