These photographs were among
many intermittently given to me, in a rather offhand and random way,
by George Simpson or Anne Roe Simpson without any indication of the
photographer or original owner. Hence, I cannot provide photo credits
as normally required. Even though the quality of the photographs
varies greatly I believe they do provide an interesting visual
record, however imperfect and incomplete.
