Provenance

Bit of a curiosity this as we can't find any markings on it at all which usually implies that it was homemade, though if it is - it's extremely well done. We do know that a firm called Camtors sold the metal 'A' frames at one time and invited folk to do the rest themselves and it's possible the whole thing came as a 'kit' for self assembly. Thanks to Hamish Brown who donated it. We'll ask him for the story next time we see him.
