This is just a beginning. We'll be adding more images in the future,
current, recent and historical. There is also a large and growing
collection of reference images of the structures and artifacts. During
initial preservation activity, we also discovered a number of
mechanical drawings, some of which we believe were created by
Samuel Knight himself.
