Because protagonist Ticonderoga Fox is a photographer, each chapter of New Old World opens with a photograph.  Most are mine, some are my family’s, and a few are “found” photos there for illustrative purposes.  Below is a sampling of these photos, beginning with a context shot to show how they appear at the chapter starts.
