We investigate recent claims that the Hubble sequence of spiral galaxies is scalefree. Fundamental to this investigation is the fact that within the photometric data of 86 spiral galaxies from de Jong & van der Kruit (1994) from which these claims were made a trend exists between morphological type and bulge profile shape. While late-type spiral bulges are… CONTINUE READING
