    The old man owner of my former employer imparted that advice to me one day as he did his daily rounds, of his one million sq ft factory.

    I never forgot it. It was more than my father told me. His advice was to put my nose to the grindstone.

    Bad idea.

    So the contents of the mystery auction lot are now known!
    The auctioneers have been super effective in keeping the postage cost down and all items were individually packed in bubble wrap. Some actually deserved this VIP treatment!

    There were lenses for full plate. Plenty of no-name small RR's, but also Lancaster, Ross and Dallmeyer (x2).

    There were 3 no-name RR's for 1/4 - 1/2 plate - none in outstanding condition.
    1 reflex focussing mount T-P/Beck aplanat.
    1 Ross Xpres 4.5 5" in a sunken focussing mount for a reflex camera.
    Goerz Dagor 180mm in a nice looking (but non-functioning) Compound - very clean glass.
    Lancaster (?) plate size landscape lens in reflex mount with Lancaster See-Saw shutter.
    Dallmeyer (sold by Watson) RR full plate RR with 3 numbered WHS - early 15813.
    Dallmeyer wide angled Patent landscape size 2 (full plate 8 1/2") with rotary stops and removable front.

    Alas, not many flanges present.
    Also included was a period tin containing a cleaning compound!

    Unfortunately, this lot was turned into 2 parcels which arrived at the same time as two other bulky parcels - so some eyebrows were raised in my nearest family!

    That Dallmeyer landscape lens can make such fine soft focused images! A gem!

    Yes I am very pleased with the Dallmeyer lenses. The landscape 3-lens achromat has been on my wanted list for some time, but alway seemed a little expensive.
    And the plate Rapid Rectilinear will replace a number of no-name or Optimus RR's.
    Lancaster's see-saw contraption is not just my cup of tea, but the lens looks quite good.
