These photos (most are printed on postcard stock) were purchased on eBay. Click on an image to enlarge (800 pixels wide), click on "Big" for a 1200 pixel wide version. Pictures to 69 were numbered on the back. With the exception of 6, they have been scanned in order. Images 70 to 92 are from a different source and are not as clear, so a larger size was not created for most.
