    Hello "tlowing"

    Thanks for sharing the link to the book. It looks like it has a lot of interesting information in it. I actually downloaded it to my computer for future reading. It's amazing how much (free) stuff a person can find on the Internet, if you know where to look for it.

    Thanks for the information!

    I'm working on converting this book to HTML and turning it into a "live" document and updating it with what's happened since the 1920s.

    Hello tlowing,

    It looks like converting the book into HTML will be quite a project. It will be great to see it when it's finished.

    I really like looking at all of the photographs and illustrtions in the book. I guess I'm like a little kid ....I like books with pictures!

    Pinkrose, it is a slow process. Every now and then a I get a few hours and start working at it. The illustrations are the most time consuming.

    Hello "tlowing"

    I can see how it would be a long slow process. I hope you keep on chipping away at it, because even though it will seem like it's taking forever, it will eventually be finished, and you can pat yourself on the back for doing such a good job.

    Once upon a time someone said, "slow and steady wins the race."

    Sometimes that's the best way to get a big project done.

    A much quicker read and well-written book is THE COFFEE BOOK, by Greg Dicum and Nina Luttinger. Although I have to check out the Coffee Companion.
