Some pictures from Margaret Baker (widow of John) to whom we are very grateful.
Our thanks, also, to Eugene MacBride for carefully annotating each picture.

Please note : These photos are over half a century old, and some are copies.
There is little more that can be done to improve the
quality. Having said that, these are wonderful records
from the past and it is a delight to receive them.
