MK III Race Finish Camera, manufactured by the Williamson Manufacturing Company Limited, London.
The Race Finish Recording Company (now known as RaceTech) started in 1946, and developed a camera system for taking finish-line photographs to provide authoritative pictures of winning horses at the races. The camera contained a reel of photgraphic film that moved continuously, resulting in the strange lines and distorted images.
