Universal Shunt

This Universal Shunt would have been used in connection with a Galvanometer to increase its range. It was probably made around 1900.

This particular model is interesting because of its maker, Robert W Paul of London. As well as being a successful scientific instrument maker, he was also the foremost pioneer of early cinema in Britain, making films in the 1890s and 1900s using a camera of his own invention.
