Would bet that gearhead is an old Mole-Richardson. Again, this was all poverty city. Everybody thought this wo...

Re: Linwood Dunn/Star Trek

Sorry for the delay. Busy with studio project. I have a better picture similar to your second shot but it looks like a setup shot since the camera is not plugged in.
