"Some photographers are the poets of purple mountains' majesty. Some are the poets of the placid suburbs. Weegee is the poet of small-timers who died face down on a city pavement at 3 a.m. in a pool of their own blood."
— Richard Lacayo, Photography: Dames! Stiffs! Mugs!, Time Magazine, January 12, 1998
The local museum near me has a sorry looking LF slr on display and I'm approaching them with a view to estoring it. They are actively using other museum items to show how they are/were used so they may be willing to listen.
I think it's a damn shame any time a camera that could be used instead is being displayed in a museum or hid away in some collector's vault. Cameras are made to be used and enjoyed, sitting on a shelf they're just inanimate objects but in the hands of a photographer they come alive.
