Well Ron, many years ago,I remember seeing pictures taken of Hal's grounds
posted in one of the magazines. It sort of looked like the lake in the old
pictures, so I took a guess.

Ron-found the magazine showing Hal Kelly's studio,workshop and home. It
was in the Spring 1974 issue of Hydroplane Quarterly, page 17. One of the
magazines that survived the moves.
