Fred Gandolfi regularly gave lectures on camera-making techniques to interested organisations, including camera clubs and colleges. One of these, at Southampton Camera Club was filmed by Ken Griffiths for the ‘Gandolfi – Family Business’ film.
To accompany these lectures Fred put together a series of notes, which were usually printed & put into booklet form by the lecture organisers. These became increasingly thorough & well presented, some of these are here in PDF form, in roughly chronological order.
Fred also took along a wide selection of practical pieces to illustrate the various stages of work the camera went through. Some of these are now in the archive & displays at the Media Museum in Bradford.

Fred really ‘pushed the boat out’ in a 1974 lecture to the RPS, staging an elaborate display of specially prepared pieces illustrating the Gandolfi working techniques.
