    Hmmm, looks like you found the better light on the other side of the room. Nice shot.

    Nice presentation! -- I'm an admin for a group to celebrate WILLIAM PHILLIPS [1826-1911] "ECO-CENTENARY 2011" - UK-IRELAND, and we'd love to have this eye-opening libraary activity image added to the group!

    We hope you'll join and help us to learn more about Phillips' UK -- Irish plus Italian eco-humanitarian support work, plus residences at Achill and Derrynasliggan, Leenane, Connemara, Co. Galway, and his SE London homes, at Sydenham Rise, Forest Hill, and Hazelwood House, North Park, Eltham, plus his son's and descendants associations with * * 58 Sherrif Road, West Hampstead, * * plus Elmstead, Chislehurst, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, Woodbridge Road, Ipswich [Rhynwick Lodge], as well as Colchester, plus Tasmania, Australia, and other areas, via our group discussions. -- Perhaps you can share more images of festivals, or a former house, etc., or discover where any of his descendants now live!!
