Spy Camera


Recommended Posts

Uncle Albert was a hoarder and I'm now, with the help of my daughter Holly, sorting through his treasures. We came across what we thought was another pocket watch.



But after some poking around on the interweb we have discovered it to be a spy camera circa 1905-1914 which took a film cartridge allowing 17 pictures the size of a postage stamp to be taken and the film to be removed from the camera in daylight. The question is...who in our family at the turn of the twentieth century could afford such a camera?

In my capacity as official shop steward for the Association of Network United Spies (incorporating Secret Police, double agents and affiliated busybodies) I have to ask if you were aware that we have been on strike now since 1987. We hold our meetings in the upstairs flat of the Crooked Plumb line public house. We were going hold them in the attic, but that's another storey. Demonstrations are held at 3am in Basingstoke High street when nobody's about or at 11am at Dragonfly House Norwich, where nobody listens.

Up the ANUS.
