I didn't catch the name of the cameras, but I can certainly check. There's a few examples of some cameras and film in the exhibition.

Pretty sneaky, new owners. Thanks for the background on Mapco Minnie, Diane and Steve! 

Max, this may be my favorite correction in all of Stroll history. Thank you for the clarification. That really does change the concept: Minneapolitans are not a nation defined by borders, but a people!
