    Thanks for the info DC. Very interesting. And the fact that you've got us discussing and comparing Snoddy to Labino, well, that's huge. Thanks again

    I know this is a super old thread, but I was hoping if anyone could give me more info on chuck Murphy and maybe direct me to some images of his work. Iím a relative of his and Iím trying to compile some stuff on him and his work
