Reading my daily newspaper "Frankfurter Rundschau" Nov.12 (1999) I came across an article on the founder of a technical museum, named Gnter Hinz, in the village of Biedenkopf (I guess near Frankfurt/Main). Mr. Hinz has collected about 40.000 (!!!!??) optical facilities, including for ex. a Photomaton, a Postcard Projector (forerunner of the dia projector), a Grapex-Reporter-Camera and a "Seeing Photocopy-Machine" for the production of army passports in the Weimarer Republik (1919-1933).

The phone number of Mr.G.Hinz respectively of his private museum: +49(germany)-06461-2563
