Housekeeping at the period pictures. Besides additions, some have switched groups. A nice message from Bert changed a lot. Also they have been rearanged to follow the "walk around" principle more precisely. (If you look from the first to the last picture you will notice it starts at "right - front" turns to front, left, back and than to right.)
