      Chris,

      Thanks very much for those photos. The repeater "farmhouse" is amazing! I
      haven't seen many huts so radically different from the standard designs.

      And the manholes in the middle of an orchard must certainly have been a
      curiousity, at least for anyone interested in underground utilities.

      Would it be OK if I added those images to my web page, credited to you of
      course? Could you send the hi-res versions when you get a chance?

      Thanks,

      Albert LaFrance
