Impressive. Should compensate for quite a low sense of self-worth ...or other inadequacies

In case of a war, convert it into a Bazooka?

Might require the use to put an assistant on the payroll to carry it.

Makes one wonder what wonderful games it shot at Yankee's Stadium or the Polo Grounds.....

Those things were not usually carried around. Kept set up in the Press Box at the stadium. Often two or three of them preset for different action points (Pitcher, first base, back field, etc.). Always seems to be plenty of money for sports stuff.

I had one about 4yrs ago sold it for a good sum of money. 5x7 way to awkward to use. I can image how difficult to get that action shot. You had to be a great photographer to get a decent image with that machine.
