The Internet Gallery

The Internet Gallery was inspired by the thoughts of David Currie, the manager of American Dream in Bath. It was created (mainly) by James Grimmett, to reflect the needs of The Gallery in this age of electronic wonders. Jim has his own set of web pages, Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe which he tries to keep up to date, but finds he rarely has the time to.
