I believe Roger is correct.  The negative used for the
photo on SS&S pg 117 is NW2222 and is B&W.  It's the
same photo used on 2nd Pigeon.  Link's color negatives
had a different numbering system.  Joan Thomas in
Roanoke has the definitive answer for this question,
but IIRC, she said the cover for 2nd Pigeon was
colorized from B&W.  Apparently Link was interested in
the process at the time the album was being developed.
