We critically compare our photometry using the INVENTORY data reduction code with results derived by other investigators using different codes. These comparisons convince us that all modern codes give results reliable to at least ±0.3mag at all levels, as long as the fields are not overly crowded. Specifically, our results for NGC 1904 (M79) are as follows: V(TO)=19.60±0.10 (estimated external error), with turnoff colors at B-V=0.40, V-R=0.27, V-I=0.57, and B-I=0.97, all with estimated external errors of ±0.06. By fitting the four resulting ridge lines to the theoretical isochrones of VandenBerg & Bell [ApJS, 58, 561 (1985)] interpolated to [Fe/H]=-1.60, Y=0.20, and [O/Fe]=0.00, we derive an average value for the age of 16Gyr, where we have adopted E(B-V)=0.01.

Note (1): Two variables reported by Sawyer-Hogg (1973, Pub. David Dunlop Obs. (University of Toronto Press, Toronto), Vol. 3, No. 6) lie in the observed area, and are marked "V2" (Star 437) and "V4" (Star 470). Also, the 6 standard stars are labelled "B" (Star 311), "C" (Star 714), "D" (Star 385), "E" (Star 303), "F" (Star 289), and "G" (Star 405). Table 4 of the printed paper details the observations of the standards.
