This slide converted rather nicely - they sky even looks blue!
Tom Wilson: Yes - and that's often not the case. Thanks, Elizabeth.
Magnifique porte !
Tom Wilson: Oui, comme L'Arc de Triomphe!

Very much like a triumphal arch Tom
Tom Wilson: Curiously located on the edge of Washington Square, with nowhere to go smile
You're reminding me of some of the spectacular pieces of art to be found all over America, Tom. Thank you. smile
Tom Wilson: A pleasure, Ginnie
A fine piece of history Tom!
Tom Wilson: I suspect that the view will have changed a little by now!

Looks like another gift from the French.That woman is properly clothed according to fashion of the time.
Tom Wilson: It does have a rather gallic feel to it!

I am going to look into slide conversion, Tom - I have inherited a lot of slides from my father, who was a professional photographer
Tom Wilson: I use a fairly cheap ION converter called Film2SD - but they may have discontinued that one - I'd probably go for this one, if I was to replace: http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/slides2pcmkiii
I ate my lunch on one of those benches. The march I was telling you about ended here. There was a stage with music, speeches, dance, speeches, poetry, speeches, etc.
Tom Wilson: At the time I was there the main attraction appeared to be the number of chess players smile
So it's not just pairs and London who have arches like this then.
Tom Wilson: Indeed not, Brian!
I would love to see this Tom, any self respecting nation must have a triumphal arch. I'm Swimdon they are more creative and have a triumphal roundabout.
Tom Wilson: I like that idea - and one could extend it of course, the triumphal shopping mall, the triumphal bypass, the triumphal railway viaduct...
Very imposing...
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Larry.
i never knew that there was such an arch in Washington Tom... great slide...
1963 was a bad year in America....petersmile

Free-standing arches seem a little odd to me, Tom.
