Of course they had effective toe in. It is obvious from the images. What you said is exactly the same as what I said in my second sentence. Technically the lenses were closer together than the film gates, because the gate spacing was dictated by the frames spacing.
If you wish to say this is not toe in, fine. It achieves the same effect. This has the problem that the focus is somewhat worse for the outside edges of the 2 frames. So even the 1940-1950’s cameras did not take perfect pictures, but they were still very good. I have a Realist, Revere, and Colorist II all of which have the window set at 7 ft, so I assume the other Realist format cameras were the same. Actually the format on the film was used by Tru-Vue in the early ‘30s long before the Realist camera was created. As to who invented that format, I have seen no claims.
