started the Facebook Group purely as an experiment to see how it worked
out. Its success has come as a surprise. It has created a forum where
I’ve been able to find answers to questions that arise within hours
rather than the many weeks when I asked for help via this website.
Photographs have become available in large quantities beyond my
imagining. If you haven’t looked at the page please do so. There’ll be
features you don’t like I’m sure, but if you’d join the group I’d be
delighted and I’m sure that there are many readers of these pages who
could make a significant improvement to the Group. I look forward to
welcoming you as a member.
