If anyone is passing through Toronto Airport, the Malton Airport Gallery on the second floor in the departure area currently has an interesting exhibit of old cameras. Of particular interest is a 4 x 5 Press King, a press camera similar to a Crown Graphic briefly produced in Toronto in the late 1940's. The example on display is fitted with a 135 Optar in a Graphex shutter. There is no rangefinder, and the body appears to be metal, with an outline reminiscent of a Super Graphic.

I did see the display at Pearson YYZ with the B&H Press King.
I did a search and there doesn't seem to be much info out there about the B&H Manufacturing Company.
It all lead me here, and to consider getting a Crown Graphic (because I can't find a Press King) to try some 4x5.
