    Anyway, I am now looking for a history of the Gandolfi cameras and what i have found is rather scarce. Do you think you could scan the obituary and mail it to me?

    I seem to remember, many years back, a paragraph in the RPS Journal by someone requesting donations to assist the Gandolfi brothers whom it said were in straightened circumstances.

    Hi Ole,
    I just read your post on the Gandolfi today(12/08) and the image has been removed by EBAY. I own an 8x10 Gandolfi I purchased from an English Auction House via Ebay. It was advertised as a "plate camera" but is,in fact, a film camera. I was a bit disapointed at first, but it is a realy nice camera.
    I have not been able to find one like it by searching the internet, but am realy curious as to when it was built.

    Bill, I believe the only man who can find out the age of a Gandolfi camera is Eddy at http://www.gandolficameras.com/! There are pictures of some of the cameras there, too.

    My first Gandolfi camera is this one - a 7x5" Traditional. It is good enough that I decided that if I were to move to 8x10", I would look for another Gandolfi. Which, as you see, I did. And found one.
