    Dear Editors:

    Is there any chance of a future online display of Mr. Pardy’s photos and story? That would be great for those of us who cannot attend the January 16 event.

    Does the Editorial Staff (or anyone, for that matter) know a good place that makes prints from glass plate negatives?
