I've been improving their bank balance for some time. Latest batch of photos were delivered today.

Same dealer still coming up with goodies! Only decent photo I've ever seen of Empire Flying Boat G-ADVC Courtier went through today http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/HFgAAOSw1 ... -l1600.jpg ....this one crashed into a glassy smooth sea in Crete. Strange that there isn't a reference archive for the Empires

Longshot: not sure if you consider this an archive of the Empires, but it is a very good resource: http://www.airwaveyachts.com.au/Aircraft/c_class.html

Yes Geoff Reichelt's AirWave Yachts site was a great find. On Seawings there is the Short FlyingBoats Reference Archive and I've just posted the Courtier link there (ebay link doesn't last forever, though )
