Cutten's pendulum recorder for psychical research
John Cutten's pendulum recorder (general view above, close-up below), for use in psychical research. This electronic device detects the movements of a pendulum which are recorded on the chart. When the pendulum moves, an electrical current is generated in a photocell and amplified by the unit feeding the recorder. Date: circa 1970s

Val d'Ossau muscians
Val d'Ossau men playing traditional local instruments to accompany dances. On the right we have a fiddler with his fiddle and on the right, the taller gentleman is playing a Psalterium (Psaltery) or tambourin a cordes, a stringed instrument tuned to provide drone chords. Sometimes called a string drum, it is usually used as rhythm accompaniment with a form of tabor pipe, as can be seen on this card. It is known in France as a tambourin de Bearn or ttun-ttun in Basque. Date: circa 1910s
