As regards "traveling to work", he did in fact travel quite a long way - I seem to recall that yachting featured prominently in his life.

reckons MB-M favored a Heliar!
Yes, I believe I had his 10 x 8 which was in a rather sorry state, I believe it was a rather old DeVere. He still worked with a mixture of 6x6 Hassle elm, linhoff and a 5x4, can't recall which. He was a real master of front projection.
