New contributor!

Let me extend my gratitude to Liam Ryan for contributing photos to the site. Liam’s father, John Ronsly Ryan (in the photograph below), took the photos on a Box Brownie 620 in July 1956 on a trip to Western Australia.

– Your statement «It is not this site’s intention to “take sides”, as it were, in the whaling debate. It’s area of interest is solely of a historical photographic nature.» fits in with my philosophy of why I have the images available in the first place. I myself do not support whaling, but acknowledge the history, and value of the images.
