Gleams Of Sunshine

James Leigh

I have been scanning my old tatty copy of Gleams OF Sunshine by James Leigh,alas it is on its last legs so before the pages start falling out I have decided to scan it all. I will then do what I can to make it last that bit longer.
I thought I'd show you the list of subscribers all of which pledged their support to get the book published. I found the list with names and addresses most interesting. Hopefully you might spot a familiar name or address.
