Subject: [Leica] Back Issues of Viewfinder
From: "Tony Salce" <>

Does anyone know how one can obtain back issues of the VIEWFINDER magazine ?

I am a member of the LHSA. I know you could order back issues through the
Leica Catalog. Can you still do so and who do you write to ? I assume it is
the treasurer. I know for previous back issues I used to write to Stanley
Hodges the former treasurer.

Kind Regards,

Tony Salce
