    It's a vertical process camera by Nu-Arc, used in small print shops before everything went computer-to-plate.

    Now be fair - in the UK, where he is, twenty thousand is indeed written as "20.000" Everything else about the ad is poorly done, though!

    It most certainly is not. Twenty thousand is written 20,000

    20.000 is just 20 in the UK but I think it would read as twenty thousand in France and possibly most of the rest of Europe.

    Sorry, I thought all of Europe switched the commas and decimals... that must be really confusing when dealing between the UK and the rest of Europe! (They already know we here in the US are weird...)
