other parts of the page. I will occasionally add some new pictures
here that have some sort of relevance. However, due to the advancement
of technology and the fact that now I don't need to take so much disk-space
on my own server, you should look for my more recent and much more
frequently updated pictures in
here. I travel a
lot and take many history related pictures that you might enjoy seeing.
