OBJ's Scrapbook

We started keeping a paper scrapbook in 1996 - long before digital cameras made this a simple process!!

We weren't always as consistent as we might have been, so the coverage and details varied year-by-year.  Eventually we scanned our scrapbook and loaded it up onto a website. It's been growing ever since.  Videos appeared along the way and they have been added to Youtube - you can find them here
