When I told my wife that I wanted a room at home decorated like this (i.e a sofa where I could sit facing a wall of sample dials) she said I was crazy

Hope J*D will do something like that around this part of the world. I think that for education purposes, this kind of exibit would out-weigh the cost of bringing it around the world. Well, if they can travel around the world with their vintage pieces, I don't see a problem of bringing aound phto frames. Lets see what happens

cheers
