    Thanks, Chris.
    I remember when this was going up and oohing-and-ahhing at it back in the early '60s.

  2. Wow, it's quite striking in the way it now stands out very clearly, whereas the previous iteration was faded. In a way, it may be a good thing that the original was allowed to deteriorate, and thus needed to be replaced. Probably shouldn't allow that to happen again, tho'.
