As I mentioned yesterday, Charles Z sent me some old time photographs and suggested that they might be of interest for Bytes. I have previously posted a lot of them but in black and white, these have been colourised, which adds an immediacy not present in the originals. Thanks, Charles.
I should also mention that a few weeks ago I referred to Charlie as a Canadian, but he sent me an email: “BTW. I am not Canadian .... just another Septic enjoying Australia! Charlie.”
