    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    This was recently photographed for a conversation regarding my last Polaroid item I have. A box of Polaroid Type 55 that I'll soon be shooting with my Plaubel Peco Universal III 4x5. My comment also included a short story of how I obtained the camera. I won't bore you with all of that but I will say that there's a very good chance that two hall-of-fame photographers owned this camera. Walter E. Bennett, the first salaried photographer for "Time" magazine. His personal decals of his signature were on many of the items I bought, and, the signature matched the Wally Bennett who covered the White House (for "Time") during the 60s & 70s.

    The other photog who probably owned this camera was “Life” magazine photographer Frank J. Scherschel who covered WWII and is famous for his color images from that time. The person I bought this from found the camera, 2 lenses, holders, etc., in a case at an estate sale in Baraboo, Wisconsin from a camera store that was going out of business due to the passing of the owner...Frank J. Scherschel.
