Galmozzi pics

I bought this Galmozzi at Cirque du Cyclisme a few years ago, but haven't done much with it yet. I don't know any of its history, and I can't tell for sure what era it was built... based on equipment and build details we were guessing late-1940s to early 1950s. We think it was built by Galmozzi Sr. A recent auction on eBay of a supposed Galmozzi with cambio Corsa shifters left me scratching my head, as that bike was no where near as nicely finished as this bike. These pics aren't great - bike is dusty and dirty, but I'm trying to learn how best to photograph old, damaged chrome. I post better pics as my quality improves, but for now, here are a few pics.
