These images, for the most part, are from publications rather than photographs
and were 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. Update:
new flatbed scanner onboard ... future additions will have improved quality.
