An interesting find.
I quote from Gerald McKee's "The Home Cinema" :-

"Sometimes a lucky collector finds a Baby with some 30 and 60ft films in cassettes. These are often in one of the film carrying cases once issued by Pathe. One model took 75 30ft cassettes, and the other 100 60ft cassettes. Even more collectable were the mahogany Film Storage Cabinets. One model, with 4 drawers held 200 30ft cassettes, and the other with 4 drawers, took 200 30ft and 150 60ft cassettes."

It's a great pity that the photographs are very poor on the eBay ad, although I notice that the cabinet has only 2 drawers. Perhaps Gerald was slightly incorrect, or perhaps the box shown was not made by/for Pathe.

Maybe it's another model, Maurice. This gauge is full of surprise...
