That's amazing. I just spent the better part of 30 minutes looking through those. One heck of a collection!

Corsicana, Texas. Belongs to a retired Western Electric employee named Don Capehart and his wife Rita. Supposedly the whole thing is for sale.

Hmmm.  We were in Corsicana today.  Wonder if they'd be interested in hiring an auctioneer?  This group could turn that into one heck of a party.   :011:
