I am working on this and it will be available within a few days. It is a subdomain and the information has to circulate around the Internet so if you cannot see it just check again the next day.
This is a place for larger copies of the pictures Wanderer has been sending to us. All the pictures for each book will be together with one page for each book.

If anyone else has copies of The Modern Boy that Wanderer does not have, you are very welcome to send me scans of the pictures... :!:
If there's one thing certain in this uncertain world it is that Algy won't go home without us.

Wow, well done you! :yay:
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.

Yes indeed. This will be very handy. I scan at 300dpi which usually gives a jpg 0.5-2Meg then have to reduce to below 250kb to post. The larger files have a lot more information in them, as I show from time to time with enlarged details.

I look forward to seeing this. Thanks in advance for collating it all together in order.
