Hit the full editor button below, then when that page opens there is a pane below the message pane for up loading pictures. Pics need to be 1280 pixels on the longest dimension, about a 2 or 3 megabyte file. Also you can link to photobucket or some similar image hosting site.

John Geddes was a top rider as you say in the 50's and 60's. AFAIK he is still around and I think his shop may still be going (run by his son?). His frames were probably built locally for him.
