The University has obviously moved the Fred Shaw page in the past few years. Here's the current link:

How do ye actually open a photo then, please? I failed miserably. I managed to find the live links, to the right. But, they just took me to some sort of home page. Why I asked.

Granted; I'm not the sharpest knife. But, I couldn't manage it.

Thanks.

It looks like these pages now contain a catalogue of the Fred Shaw photos, with brief descriptions, but the images themselves aren't visible on screen any longer.

Perhaps the University has changed its policy in the past 5 years. Or it may be a temporary technical issue on the website? Might be worth checking with the Special Collections team tomorrow.
