So a most pleasant “Steam Driven Quiz Night” at renowned Brighton hostelry The Yellow Book proved to be more than a little educational. We learnt about this chap:
A Mr William Friese-Greene, latterly of these parts who was an inventor of early cinematographic devices. He was a little tardy in his inventions, but had a supreme talent at naming them. His early creation was a Biophantascope and later he made a chronophotographic camera.
A profilic inventor and a most excellent nomenclaturist, Mr Friese-Greene, we salute you.
