Chris Nichols is an editor at Los Angeles magazine, but he's also a walking encyclopedia when it comes to Southern California's history. Every so often he comes by and he brings in one of his treasures.

Today he brings in a toy cameraman that was once used for the Kraft Television Theater of the 1940s and '50s. It was a promotion that you could get if you mailed in enough box tops to Kraft.
