      Thank you very much! I did my best within the limited confines of my personal photo collection, but I’m sure I may have omitted some groups. (If so, I apologize: I’m always collecting and hope to have a more comprehensive set in future, and no slight was intended; these just happen to be the only pictures I have usage rights for.)
