Houses into Flats.
1947 advert from Architectural Review by Ascot. Interesting on many levels, not just the lovely image but you can spot Barnett Freedman’s Initial used in the book, if you’ve sharp eyes. A part too of the post-war reconstruction debates that AR were central to.

Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland from the Harold Edgerton Archives. Edgerton invented the electronic flash and pioneered high speed “stroboscopic” photography and was instrumental in the foundation of the American Speed Light Corporation. (ASCOR) Initially, electronic flashes were referred to “Speed Lights”.
The ASCOR. (short stack) When I began my career in photography a big indoor job required this. This is a short stack compared to what we used. The average Speed Light could take a charge from 4 capacitors managed by a generator. (The thing on the top) Each capacitor delivered 800 ws (watt seconds).
