Old Photographs

Postby Lindus Edwards on Wed Jul 14, 2010 10:31 am

Twelve more photographs have been added to my little site below. My thanks to Mr Roy W. Davies of Shropshire, England, for donating them from his private collection. Save for one photograph (Lieber playing Gonotsky) I have never seen them before.

Those pictures were great. I really enjoyed looking at all of them. You have a great history there. You should get with jay and have thme posted on his site for in rememberance of all the old players. For these are ones that need to be not lost but for all our future players to be able to long in the past.

Thank you so much for sharing these.

I was so pleased that you all liked the latest photographs. It was kind of Roy Davies to share them with me. Kim, I have told Jay and Liam that they can use any photograph or movie from my site :D

Lindus....thanx for posting these.
Now I know where Earl Hangen got his copies from......all of these images were published in Earl's "Wood's Ladder Report" which he would send to mail players.
I have Earl's original copies of WLR, with these same photographs taped to the page. I have already utilized most of the images on the OMOCH site....mainly within the TIMELINE.
I was never quite sure who sent them to Earl (sadly, Earl no longer recalls his connection to the game, although he can still play a decent crossboard game , I just visited with him last Sunday, and we played two draws) ....now I know who sent them...

Thanx again...

Regards
