Directories Subject to Change
Currently, the digitized properties are given their own subdirectories, with unique names indicating a bit about the vintage and type of material. It is unlikely that this approach will scale past a certain point, so it is suggested that you mirror copies of particularly interesting pages that you wish to share, or be prepared to jump around in the future re-finding the scan you originally saw.
