Albert Woolson Then and Now
Okay, this isn’t a super-exciting “then and now” involving photos from the 19TH century, but I guess nine years apart will have to suffice. I was recently struck by the difference in my two photos of Albert Woolson, the last remaining Union soldier (who died in 1956, or so the story goes). The view from 2005 shows the Cyclorama building, with which locals and tourists alike had either a love or a hate relationship . . . there wasn’t much of a middle ground :-) The 2013 photo, albeit shaky (taken from the car) shows Mr. Woolson and --- hold your applause --- no Cyclorama! I’ve got to say I appreciate the modern view much more.
