    I think that deserves a two-syllable Day'um, as in "Day'um that's a huge camera".
    Too bad there's no darkslidey kind of arrangement to be able to wheel it around loaded and use it in the light. 1:1 portraits on 16x20 would look great.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    It is a process camera. It is a little strange to see one on wheels, but otherwise they were very common. Any print shop that produced work with an offset press might have one.

    In my youth, when I was shooting 35mm film, it was fun using the process camera in my high school's print shop.

    Yes, it's a process camera. In my experience the back of the camera was normally built into the wall of the darkroom. I'm a printer, and haven't seen one in many years. I once had a smaller vertical one (like an enlarger) that I tried unsuccessfully to sell, then give away, about 15-18 years ago. I finally just put it in the alley behind my shop - it was still there when I moved about five years later, although someone had taken the lens.
