(The several previously-unpublished details here are all to be found in Hand Me My Travelin' Shoes, and are a small part of the new research the book incorporates. The photograph, which shows the Ingram Building in more recent times, is not included in the UK hardback of the book. I am hopeful that a future US edition will do better on photographs.)
