The strap says Mamiya
Could be a 6x7 with prism finder then. A quick look suggests only the automatic winder as a right hand grip option. Pretty heavy to hand hold.
Didn't Kate Bush sing about Heathcliffe's Mamiya?
On another tack. At the Shrewsbury Steam Fair yesterday I was not surprised to find that some enthusiasts go in for military vehicles as do others cars, tractors etc. and I've seen the odd decommissioned tank or two in my travels but I've never before seen someone with a field gun. They must have a big garage.

Home rule for Railway Cuttings in East Cheam!

Exeter's Paris Street is showing some signs of life after several years of "will they or won't they knock down the Eastern side to build a new shopping centre". (They seem to have decided they won't.) This wood statue of a stag has been placed on the pavement by one of the shops still hanging on despite the blight...
This pair of paddocks in a bigger field have intrigued me for years. Partly it's the strange triangular subdivision and partly it's the way the fences all cross the ridge and furrow, so are up and down like an Essex boy's bottom.
Today is the start Chuseok (Korean thanksgiving) and my daughter sent me this picture from a Seoul supermarket. Yup, that's Spam gift hampers.
Never heard of Army Base Stew - invented after the Korean War, to use scrounged food?
We had a Korean restaurant locally that did Army Base Stew. And included Spam in the recipe shown on the menu.
Seeing this bunch of Exeter city maintenance men today made me think about how many things we take for granted. Our civilisation is so connected, so complicated and relies on so many people doing so many things and yet we make the greatest fuss about the least important people. Here are the people that are important: the "little people"...
What did the Vikings ever do for us?

Yup! The beginning of the end.
Although Exeter's timber framed houses are quite well known this oddity in Heavitree Road is less so. It's been there for as long as I can remember though you can only get a good view of it from the top deck of a bus. The supports for the upper floor in particular are pretty unusual in my experience...
Probably as patronising a statement as I've ever read.....
You haven't been listening for the last 5 years then!
That's a nonsense response.
Andrew was merely playing with current descriptions of 'the people'. You know, the 52% of voters who voted leave?
I certainly would classify myself as one of the 'little people' at present. The unseen and unappreciated.
Andrew? When I see my lot, I thank them - the bin men, the street cleaners, the shelf fillers, the bus drivers etc etc. The ones who make life tolerable.
Definitely not in tune with that if they are supposed to be leave voters. Missed something along the line.
Exactly the point I was striving to make. These are the people who keep our civilisation alive. To give a few more examples: everyone in the NHS, junior civil servants, the people who work in caffs, the mechanics and the railway staff. The list goes on and on.
Not on that list are the overpaid time wasters who think they're more important than others. They're the ones we can most easily do without.
