For many years Herman Van Dyk has made a hobby of producing fine plans and drawings of LTA
subjects, many of which have appeared in books and magazines. This collection also features
many which have not been published.
Herman has produced all of the work on his drawing board, thus giving them a personal touch
that a computer does not. Many have required him to undertake extensive research into historical
projects, unearthing much hitherto lost information.
