Beachcombing in cyberspace

I’m continually amazed by what fetches up on the Internet. It’s a little like beachcombing in cyberspace.

About forty years ago I worked freelance on a regular basis for United Press International out of London. I often used to wonder what happened to my pictures in their files.

Recently, a Google search revealed that their picture collection had been bought  by the TopFoto picture library. A quick search of their files turned up these two pictures of mine from the late 60s. There are probably more, but these were just two assignments I remembered.
