Reagan Photos

LA Times has an excellent collection of Ronald Reagan photographs, divided into eras in his life. What’s particularly interesting to me is the ones from after he left office, since one so seldom sees those.

Note: The photo archives are linked in the sidebar of the story above. I’ve been unable to figure out the direct link to the galleries, although I can link each individual picture. The pictures below are on my own server space, with the captions and attributions taken exactly from the LA Times gallery.
