World Trade Center 1984 and 2014

The 09/11 is a very painful day in the memory of the United States and in the free world. And no other American symbol best represents the sadness of this day as our twin towers, which collapsed after the terrorist attack.

Today I’m publishing a photo from my personal collection that shows the unforgettable towers of the World Trade Center, seen from the intersection of Broadway and Duane Street in 1984.

Pretzel anyone ?

I really love when I found slides from travellers. They always show some interesting pictures of public places in a more relaxed way than taken by locals, since tourists always have a different way of portraying the city.

This slide from december 1970 shows a commom everyday scene of Philadelphia. And for many people not be worth a photo, but worth to these three people: one stop to eat some pretzels.

Old State House, Boston 1961 and Now

One of my favorites cities in America is Boston. I just visited once in 2012, for a week, but I can’t wait to return. Maybe in 2014 yet…

The following picture shows the Old State House, right in downtown. I believe the two ladies in dresses are together with who take the photo. There is no mention about who is those women in the slide’s frame, the photographer just take note about the month (june) and the year (1961).
