Drawing of a camera with notes

  • Original object type: Artefact
  • Title: Drawing of a camera with notes
  • Description:

    This leaf of paper contains many overlapping drawings. Le Prince's main diagram shows a section of a camera. He has also drawn parts of other pieces of machinery and many circles. Le Prince has added notes describing the purposes of parts of the machinery. There is an extensive list of various types of sports and entertainments including the circus, and other phenomena such as warships firing and express trains. These could be things that he wanted to film. Le Prince has sketched on the back of the paper. One of the sketches appears to show a seating plan. The original leaf of paper is now in two pieces.
