 Photos Page 10

The last 10 pages have all been my photos, and cover my 2 1/2 years on Minerva, from 1970 - 1972. I have no more to add, but welcome submissions from any of my readers. See here for scan tips. Pictures of Minerva, or of Minerva people, or cartoons, are especially welcome. (PRI Chas Cooper, where are your cartoons?)
