Dear Hans, Thank you very much for kindly sharing this information and sending the photo of my mother and father's wedding day. It's a fine quality photograph, compared with my scan from the family albums. Yes, in answer to your question, I would be delighted to obtain a higher resolution file; which I could print and give to my mother as a present. She will be 87 years old next June, and it would make a surprising present for her. I know Middelburg, I was there in the early 1970's when I used to stay with my girlfriend, at the time of the great Delta-werk. It was a fascinating time then. Sincere thanks, David.
