Meet Bob Montgomery.  He lived on Cyprus in the 1950s.  I rather like 
his old photos of all of these Durrellian locales in the 
1950s--especially since Bob took these shots right before or in the 
moment that Durrell was writing them up for /Bitter Lemons/ and making 
them "Durrellian."

Go read Bob's "A different time, a different place" essay and see all of 
his old photos. 

Here is something Bob meant as a prose disclaimer but which reads as a 
little poem.

>             This final part contains the remainder of my pictures.

>             is  No.
>             Some of these seem more interesting than others.
>             There are pictures I do not remember taking.
>             Some I can only guess what they show.
>             And there are others I have absolutely no idea about.

I say thank you, Bob. 

Charles
