Comment from James Clark Mixson (#909):

As I was perusing the 1918 photograph of James Darlington and his offspring (for the umpteenth time!!) I realized that your notes on who is who mentioned Aunt Alice as being the "one with the hearing aid". I looked closely and, LO AND BEHOLD...I am in physical possession of the thing on her dress which is actually the microphone part!! I am flabbergasted that you have a picture, 83 years old, which shows that which I came into possession of when Aunt Alice died. Jim
