News Photographers’ Auto Is an Oversized Camera
PROGRESSIVE newspaper photographers of Atlantic City, New Jersey, have installed an auto body modeled after a camera, from which they take pictures of the news events in that vicinity. In addition to its advertising value, the odd body provides space for a darkroom in which plates may be developed on the way back to the office.
A ladder in the interior leads to a platform at the top of the huge “camera” 10 feet above the ground. This elevation enables the camera men to get unusually effective pictures of crowds and sporting events.
