Reply Andrea Sanfilippo September 14, 2010 The sepia tones add so much to these photos. Reply Joan Taylor June 29, 2011 Icons such as this and the Eiffel Tower seem to have been around forever, so it’s hard to imagine a time when they weren’t there! Photographs like these remind me that they haven’t been. Very interesting. Reply Florian Aupetit March 12, 2012 Very inspiring! Thank’s Reply Eric April 29, 2014 Too bad we couldn’t reverse the construction? Play the movie backwards? Sell the thing to our worst enemies? Bomb the whole island? O.K. ?
