(Lef to right in the foreground) Bob Kravitz & John Carracciolo
WFIL-TV Film Crew
Bellevue Strafford Hotel, Center City Philadelphia
Here's a photo of Broadcast Pioneers member Bob Kravitz as a WFIL-TV sound technican, (that's him in the lower left hand corner). Bob is using a Cine 200 audio box with an umbilical cord attached to the camera.
The man at the camera was John Carracciolo and he was using a Cine Pro 600. It had a heater in it to keep the 16mm film warm during those cold Philly Days and Nights.
The crew was at the first Academy of Music Ball. The event was at the Bellevue Strafford Hotel in Center City Philadelphia.
