The Pullin Optical Co. Ltd., of Phoenix Works, Great West Road, Brentford, were involved in the immediate post-war period with the development and production of a number of photographic and related products, which were unusual and often innovative in design, and manufactured to high standards of engineering and finish. Besides the rangefinder, the company made a neat little selenium exposure meter, professional-standard slide projectors and lenses and an excellent 35 mm. emlarger.
In the 1950s, even
a modest amateur camera cost the equivalent of the average
weekly income; the perceived desirable feature of a coupled
rangefinder was completely out of the reach of the majority. The
'second-best' option was to acquire a separate rangefinder, and
a large number of different makes and designs was available.
