Catalog of George Burgard’s A.V.G. Collection

   Click on the "button" down the left hand side of the page and go to the photo of the collection item.  The web site on the CD has much larger high resolution photos of the collection since it doesn't have the restrictions of slow speed internet travel.  They are quite nice if I do say so myself.
