U.S.A. - Ruby, Arizona - September 1970.

View from the hills above Tucson.

Ruby.  This is a Ghost mining town, Mr Daughtery  had a small share of this old Gold Mine, the fellow we are meeting was a mining engineer who was reprocessing the mullock heaps.

The Old School House at Ruby.

REAL Cowboys near Nogales at the Mexican Border, off the Ruby-Nogales back route.

Farewell to the beautiful Daugherty's.  What beautiful people they were taking in four dirty dusty Aussies... lovely memories.

Good Morning
I met Mr Daugherty many years ago when I was about 12 years old. He introduced me to Ham Radio, which turned out to be a huge influence on my life. I would like to have your permission to use a couple of your images of Lou on my facebook pages, since I don't have any pictures of him at all. Your excellent blog really brought back memories, since I did a similar trip to Australia in 1984. Lou was a great guy.
