Sorry Donal, my sentence wasn't very clear. It was only the *booklet* that
showed both the Viso and bellows equipment. But if the bellows had been
actually for sale, I would be still be saying: sorry, Donal, I already
bought it! 

I also visited friends in the Dalles as a kid in the 50's - what a
beautiful spot (tho a bit windy)! If only Lewis and Clark had packed a
Leica or two to record the pristine country they saw!
