These images, for the most part, are from publications rather than photographs and have been scanned using a budget grey-scale handheld scanner. Photos are (were?) also 'halftoned' as part of the publishing process ... leading to the unusual patterns in some of the images. That and the fact that the grey scale palette doesn't always 'line up' with Window's palette reduces quality to less than might be hoped for. Photo contributions invited.
