A mixture of solidity and movement. I wonder what the same view looks like now?
Tom Wilson: Probably more and different vehicles but otherwise much the same, I think.
Washington, D.C. in 1971! Just think how many would love to bring back such an un-chaotic scene!
Tom Wilson: Neo-liberal economics has a great deal to answer for in the US, Ginnie!

I like this peek at the vehicles, which would now be described as "veteran", Tom.
Tom Wilson: Just the way I feel, then, Ray smile

And no doubt more traffic now, Tom
Tom Wilson: I would guess so, Lisl - I've been back a couple of times since then and the traffic has grown on each occasion!
I quite like this perspective Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard - it gives some idea of the city away from the monuments!

It does look great. A modern day picture of the same place will probably show a traffic jam.
Tom Wilson: I wouldn't be at all surprised, Louis!
I've read so many novels with Washington DC as the setting I often wonder if the places shown on pictures here are perhaps included in those novels.
Tom Wilson: That's highly likely, Brian.
