Very nice! Hope this might inspire more people to efforts like this. It
is a part of the history that really needs to be documented!

Well... judging from the file name, and the (not always subtle) Photoshop
cleanup work... B^} It came from my site. You are welcome to it
regardless. (at least as much as I can say that, not being a legal
representitive of Gernsback Publications) ;^}

Only thing I might suggest, would be the addition of a copyright
attribution. (which I do in the 'alt' fields of the image link)
