I'm using  Show[ Table[ Graphics[ Rectangle[ ---]]]]  to draw a bunch of 
narrow horizontal bars, all of which run from x = 0 to positive x 
values, and all of which have y values between 1 and 10.  (The graphic 
is a horizontal bar chart, essentially)

If I add  

    AxisOrigin -> {0,0}, Axes -> True  

as options for Show, this adds acceptable x and y axes to the graphicm 
with the x axis at y = 0, below the lowest bar.

But I don't want a y axis, only an x axis, so I try  

    AxisOrigin -> {0,0}, Axes -> {True,False}  

and now the horizontal (x) axis moves up on top of the lower bars, 
somewhere around y = 1.5.


(Could using PlotRange->All have something to do with this?)
