In the course of re-tooling the website I have been eliminating a bunch of the old 1990s-vintage
coding and especially focusing on the Scrapbook which was admittedly a mess. I want to retain the
images from "the old days" though and in doing so have created this "Legacy Series". I can't bring
myself to throw away those old photos so I think this is the best way to keep 'em in storage! I have
included the commentary that I provided on the original pages verbatim. Those comments reflect my
understanding of what the photos represented at that time. In time my entire website will be a legacy!

In addition to the photos that I've salvaged from the Scrapbook the Legacy Series will include my old
home movies (Super-8 in the 1970s) and 3rd generation copies of VHS and 8mm video from the '80s-1990.
