  1. Excellent photography by Mr. Sochurek. Looking through Life magazine was always a treat. Thanks for posting an outstanding series.

    I also agree with Barrie Daviey’s comments, but at least we can still comment on the main ER pages. The forum has collapsed into all spam with the regular members locked out.
