Thanks for the "Golden Spike" info - I'll pass that along to the writer. It
seems to be conclusive evidence that Crow Creek Hill's designation was an
official AT&T policy.
I checked the group's Photo section, and found that it has run out of space
(30 MB). You could try uploading your photos to the Files section, which
still has about 4 MB of space remaining.
As a long-term solution, I would be glad to host anyone's images from the
Files and Photos sections on my Long Lines or Cold War Infrastructure web
sites, as appropriate. I have plenty of space available, the domain names
are registered so the URLs won't change in the future, and the photos would
of course be credited as the contributor requests. This has the advantage
of making the pictures available to any web user, rather than just Cold War
