As you can see I have scanned the photo. Below is a 200dpi resolution for you to download and print. I can do one at an even higher quality resolution in .tiff if anyone wants it.

Thank you for the pictures of Gothenburg, I really enjoyed them as the city has sentimental memories for me. (I might as well tell you that some years ago, after a nasty divorce, I was travelling in Sweden and ended up having a memorable relationship with an interesting Gothenburger) The places are all familiar and I have been inside the college and seen its wonderful interiors as he was teaching there. I also made some women friends from the local Zonta club, one of whom I still visit and so have had the chance to return several times. Last January we went to see the reconstruction of the porcelain carrying clipper which was almost complete and went to see A Chorus Line (in Swedish) at the new Opera House. A wonderful town!! You obviously all had a great time!! better keep that photo to show your grandchildren, although it might confuse them about your age!!

Hi Jay. Nice to hear that you enjoyed the photos and the presentation of Göteborg. If you come back to the city get in touch. As you probably understand I work at Hvitfeldtska Gymnasiet (I'm the Head of History Department and I work as a History teacher in the IB program as well as in the Swedish National program).
As a matter of fact two of us went out to the reconstructed East India Ship Götheborg II. It's quite an experience. Here is actually a good link (so you can follow the trip once they get started...)
Gothenburg II :rolleyes:

  • Interests:I am currently Director of ICT at Melbourne Girls Grammar. All our girls from Year 5 upwards have their own notebook computer which they can connect to our network from every classroom in the school (we got rid of the last "lab" two years ago). All the machines used by the girls are PIII or faster. and we partner with Toshiba and Fujitsu. We run Novell 6.1, have 18 nodes and can connect a maximum of 1500 users at one time. We have a 10Mbs internet connection. <br><br>My current projects for 2004 are: to overhaul our website which if you check it out I'm sure you will agree needs it! Secondly to set up a portal - I have the hardware and will be setting up a pilot with the Novell software around mid year. Thirdly we are constructing a Science Futures Centre and I am project managing the IT and Comms infrastructure.<br><br>I'm sure you are aware that it was in Melbourne that the whole "laptop" thing started. This is the third major independent school in Melbourne in which I have directed learning technology programmes. In 1999/2000- I took some time out to set up the learning technology programme at the International School of Toulouse which is where I met Richard Jones-Nerzic and also John Simkin who are regular contributers to this Forum.<br><br>If anyone wants to ask anything about notebook computers, constructionist learning theory, network design in schools, school portals, professional development please drop me an email. <br><br>

Richard Jones-Nerzic toting a Colt .45! That is only slightly less scary than when you tote a Telecaster. But if that is a Confederate uniform Richard shouldn't you have had a .44 to be hysterically accurate?
