Display Lotus Wordpro files with images [closed]

I have a lot of old Lotus Wordpro files. Many of these have JPEG images pasted into them. LibreOffice Writer will open these files and display the text, retaining the formatting pretty accurately. However, the images appear simply as solid blue rectangles. Is there some way to make the images display correctly?

Buy a copy of Lotus WordPro on eBay for a few pennies and open the files using it. Extract the images ...

I am still using a 22 year old version of Lotus WordPro, Approach and 123 which came with my Windows 95 PC - they run happily under Windows 7.

Or visit and convert the files to .odt.
