    I'm definitely interested, which ain't news. I wouldn't even mind travelling to the VPC to use it, if Gene is still interested in that. (I would expect to use it probably at most once or twice a year.)

    They were asking $550 for the century, but I suspect they will take significantly less. There is a very limited market for such a thing, and it's far too enourmous and heavy to move on ebay.

    The glass on the 5x7 back is in good shape, but I didn't see any glass on the 8x10. The lens was surprisingly fast (4.5), but was branded by a Lexington, MA company I had never heard of (something Precision, I think). There were some glass plate holders and at least one 8x10 film holder. Bellows looked to be in decent shape, but I did not do a flashlight inspection.

    Suzanne, the owner's wife remembers you, do you have contact info for her, now that the store is closed?

    VPC is too far from Boston for me to be interested, should it take up residence there. I don't know how feasible it would be for it to move from owner to owner on a monthly (or quarterly) basis, given its size. Others who have moved such beasts (Whitey?) might know better. Are there any options for its housing in metro Boston?
