This site has been running since 1998. It is non profit making and intended to be educational. Until recently, apart from a few named pictures, only photographs taken by the web master have been used. The 2004 re-vamp has required the use of more varied and historical pictures to illustrate the text. Quite frankly, I'm not so old that I could have taken them. Well, not all of them anyway. In many cases it has not been possible to trace the original sources but if any copyright owner has objections to pictures appearing on this site please contact the webmaster.
