Re: April 2019 Challenge: Old Technology

It seems that some of you were so keen to like the pictures that you did not wait until all the entries were in - to keep a level playing field Mark asked me to "tidy them up" until the voting date officially arrives ... no offence to anyone's pictures intended.. just making sure we have an open challenge

Regards
Andy
