    Thanks, jphua. The first four objects were from the 50's.
    Btw, the date of the Area Licence in #6 is the last day of the scheme, before the ERP took over. I happened to buy the licence on that day and decided to keep it for posterity
    Btw too, the photos were taken with my handphone camera, so please excuse the grain, the erratic white balance and the unpredictable plane of focus.
