This is a wonderful web site, and even better store for Hamilton's history. Unfortunately I have not been able to view most of your images on my monitor. The ones presented are too small for proper viewing. The one image you do provide of the store-front, with car, is overly large for most uses.
Is it possible for posting more images, of Hamilton, at approx. 600-800 pixels in dimension?

thank you
Doug
