One thing that always strikes me, when visiting the US, is the relative lack of interest in the value of monuments (mainly architectural) of the 'recent' past. I wholeheartedly agree with your 'historical viewpoint', in fact you reminded me of a 'before and after' series I would like to post to Panoramio, thanks.
