Index of all diaries | Murray Home Page
This is a set of photos - no diary was kept during 1989.
To keep the file sizes reasonable for downloading speed I have used a 200-pixel image. If you are interested in a particular image, assuming it has a blue or mauve border around it, you can click on the image and you will see the 600-pixel version of it. (Images without a border do not have a 600-pixel version available)
When you have finished looking at the big version, you need to click on the "back" button in the browser menu to return to where you were previously.
