PROJECTED PICTURE TRUST

 

 

 

Some years ago, before work and then illness intervened, I was actively involved with the Projected Picture Trust (PPT) For those who may not know,

this is a charitable trust dedicated to preserving the equipment that was used to show films in the commercial cinema, but also home movie machines.

For all the organisations/bodies/coverage involved with film, the PPT is virtually the only one that focuses on the machines. The Science Museum/Bradford don't seem

very interested and without the PPT little would survive. Even so, it's a constant battle against against time and very limited resources.

 

The PPT has a small cinema at Bletchley Park with a display of machines. Here are some pictures that Mikael Barnard took for me to give some idea of

what the PPT does, focussing mostly on my main interest of narrow gauge.

The PPT has its own website at http://www.ppttrust.org/ and has prepared a CD ROM showing many of the machines they have collected.
