The N.Y. series from 1981 is really interesting, Peter! You must have scanned these photos, but still the quality is very good! No doubt the cars have changed after all these years, but the buildings still look the same. Best wishes, Anne

Thank you Ann

Yes I scanned these photos and as they had got a little faded in an album over the years I used the auto correct on photoshop, and they came out quite well.

Voar Alto had posted a picture identical to this from 2008, and I thought it would be interesting to see one 28 years previous to compare. On this of course you can see the Twin Towers, and that gave me the idea that it may be of interest to compare the changes. (I have some others to upload)

Personally I would like to see pictures of an earlier date if they can be restored with the modern technology.

Regards, Peter
