Can you scan those postcards and post them on the site? There may be relevant detail on that might be missed on your drawings. I'd sure appreciate being able to see the photos.

Douglas Butler -

Thanks for your contributions to this site.

Looking at some of your drawings, it seems clear that you were working off of photographs when you did your work.

Could you possibly post the original photos that you used to make the drawings?
