Before PM 

 

BEFORE PM
 

Even before there was Pathescope Monthly, there was Baby Ciné. Copies seem to be exceeding rare, which presumably accounts for the fact that many of the following were in shocking condition and have needed much work to make them presentable (the evils of sellotape repair in the dim and distant were evident over time). That's also my excuse for the fact that I have no idea of the proper order of the pages within any given issue. The originals were printed as three pages on both sides of paper rather larger than A4, concertina folded to the width of a single page. Even earlier are the two-page-per-side versions. The two providers here are Pat Moules and David Richardson.

It has taken hours of effort to re-find the old files, improve many of them, cut them down to size (pixel-wise) and load them up. I find this sort of thing terribly confusing at the best of times, so if you identify any faults, please do let me know so I can correct. Of course, the loan of any issues not included here would be most welcome. I should also mention one issue seems to repeat in the pop-ups, so there are 12 images. I do not know why, or how to fix it.

Quite a few of these seem to have survived the Great Software Disaster, so the images are not linked and you will need to use the back arrow to return to the page after each image.

You may ask why the single pages come out so much bigger than the doubles. I have no idea, they just do.

Presumably the bit you can't read above is the same as the appropriate page below.
