Hi Tom, I can't remember the context of my original post as I know full well that is a process camera, in fact, I know the camera being operated by your father well as it is the one now owned by Sandy that unfortunately did get submerged in the 2011 Queensland floods.
Marcel Safier asked "Is this a Hunter Penrose process camera" (November 30, 2010 at 8:45). Yes, this is a Hunter Penrose camera being operated by "Jack" Worthington (my father, identified by an uncle) at the Queensland Survey Office in Brisbane in October 1949. This photo appears in "Lost Brisbane : and surrounding areas 1860-1960" (2014) captioned '"Hunter' Process Camera , Survey Office, October 1949'. And is also in "Mapping history: Photography and mapping" and "Queensland Survey Department", page 2, 1 Sep 2006 captioned "Hunter Penrose camera" .
