Geoff Willey Cine Projector

Here is photographer Geoff Willey's Bell and Howell 613 16mm cine projector.

During the war, Geoff worked for the government and travelled around the North of England showing propaganda films. In his book - Ryedale In My Heart - he recounts the time when he came to Hutton-le-Hole village hall. There was no electricity and a generator was used to power the projector.
In the picture below, Geoff is shown putting on a film for army personnel.
