  2. I have a vintage (1920’s) Delineator magazine- beautifully illustrated ads & articles. Would you be interested in receiving some page scans for this site (or other good purposes)? (If so, how might one proceed, please?…&/Or perhaps there’s a way/website by which one might get some payment in exchange for such?)
