Object of Interest



The above cine-camera dating from 1923 was bought by a member of the Friends at a Braintree charity shop in March 2020. This was made by the Paris firm of Continsouza and was one of the first cine-cameras made for family, as opposed to professional, use. Originally hand-cranked it has been fitted with a Swiss-made clockwork motor. Later in the 1920s these were marketed by Pathe as the Baby Cine-Camera.
