Hi, Alan,

You may also move Epilog/Prolog to the Show statement itself, if this seem more logical. Like this:

image1,image2, image3,...

Though this makes the same, it improves the readability of the code.

Have fun, Alexei

The suggestion to move the Epilog/Prolog to the first plot is helpful.  Still, after all this discussion, I am inclined to say that comparison with the simplicity of mpl's axvline suggests that there is a missing feature in Mathematica: perhaps, a keyword for Rectangle coordinates to get the full graph extent. In economics and finance graphs, this is a very common need.
