Thanks All.

I haven't had a free moment to photograph the front tilt mechanism in detail, but here is a photograph of me using the camera--

And here is a page showing close up shots of a smaller version with a similar front tilt mechanism--

That page mentions an 11x14" camera similar to the one shown, sold on eBay in 2002, and I am fairly sure he is referring to my camera, as not many 11x14" cameras similar to this show up on eBay, and I did purchase it on eBay in 2002, and I was shopping around for an 11x14" at the time, so I would have seen other cameras like it up for sale.
