So quiet you would endanger no-one but yourself if you fired a musket down this avenue, Tom.
Tom Wilson: And they do have the muskets available smile
Très belle avenue, j'aime les couleurs.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
I was thinking this had a '70's feel to it ... but I can't explain why - maybe the faded tones...
Tom Wilson: It probably looks much the same today.

It almost looks like Scandinavia Tom
Tom Wilson: Does have a hint of that about it.
It has a very colonial look to it Tom
Tom Wilson: One of very few places in the USA that has been preserved like this.
What a peaceful place Tom! I quite like the tones.
Tom Wilson: We got a quiet day - normally, the place is buzzing with tourists.

I wonder what it would look like if you took the picture today, Tom
Tom Wilson: Very much the same, I think, Lisl - the trees will be 45 years older or felled in some cases, but the houses are part of the "living museum".
This reminds me of here.
Tom Wilson: I guess the colonists were a little later in PEI?
If this is old America then I would like to visit, as long as they haven't let vehicles in these days.
Tom Wilson: No, the historic part is car-free, Brian.
Car free peace, these old shots are well worth re visiting
Tom Wilson: Yes, indeed! Thanks, Martin.

Amazing qualtity I would say, what a wonderful street view. I hope they did no renovation to this street.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid. I think they try to keep the place pretty much as it was.
Things seemed much simpler back in then Tom... great composition... superb scan....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter - yes, a much simpler life-style, but probably a shorter one, too!
