    Here are some pictures of George and his wife which I took during my visit
    about 5 or 6 years ago:

    Also his article on the lunar distances. The illustration
    in this article shows me taking a lunar with George's sextant
    (a very fine 1850-s sextant by Cary of London which he bought on e-bay
    shortly before my visit)
    from his backyard:
