Hi Andrew, and thanks.
All the photos, except for six, are mine. The Pyramid and the model of ancient Rome, the sarcophagus of Pope Adrian IV, the two of the Lansdowne House Drawing Room, and the CCTV exhibit at MoMA are not mine. Interestingly, the 1977 Italian study tour photos always existed as slides until a couple of years ago I took digital snaps of the slides on a light table--and it worked. I used my father's Ziess Icon Contessa camera when I was in Italy. Zeiss is a leading maker of optical instruments/equipment these days.
