Howard, Thanks so much for this tip. This is a really amazing collection! I knew parts of it were online, but this is really fantastic and besides, the resolution of the pictures has much improved. I already spotted some real treasures, so I guess all my spare time for the coming months has been spent in advance. However I’m afraid, there is one person in the house, who will probably not be as delighted as I am wink

Ha Greg O, you’re so right about that, along with so many questions could be asked with unsolved answers and I didn’t even finish looking at them yet, which I will do by the end of the week, just in case there’s a mystery about them for this weekend

Thanks Howard for the link to this fantastic collection. I’ll be spending part of the holiday weekend browsing through it. It may take a few months to check them all out but it will sure be interesting.
