Many thanks for your help... Over the years I have spent many happy hours at the Argosy - mostly among your old maps. Whenever we have taken a trip, we have bought an old map of the country or area to remind us of where we've been. We have a whole wall of maps from the Argosy. As well as a number of your small prints of areas in the USA. They make wonderful presents for friends and family too - also some of your older books on special subjects. So you can see I am a big fan of the Argosy! - Katherine M.
