** New**
I have added "hotspots" on the Building Signs, that I can read.
 (note- some signs are illegible and no hot spot on them)
Also some of the buildings I have identified with a hotspot around them.
Note- Not all buildings are identified.
Move your Mouse over the picture, slowly, and you should be able to read
what the sign says, or the name of the building if there is a hotspot there..
If you add my site to "Compatibly View settings" under the "Tools" button, in IE
you will see the words appear as you mouse over the pictures.
It may or may not work in some browsers.

If you don't see any words appear on the mouse over,
 try clicking once on the sign or building, wherever a hand symbol appears,
and you will go to an index, below the picture, for the whole story.

Those using Touch Screens, sorry,
 you need to click to see the write up below the picture
Another reason I hate touch screens!
