My city on a notecard dated 1981
In trying to weed out some of my moms things again, I came across this card I sent her. I dated my note 1981 so I guess this photo must be around that time. I see "my city" almost daily and I am amazed when a building is in a spot it wasn't a day before. I can hardly recognize this view. I know if I had a chance to drive my parents thru town today they would not even know where they were,it's all so different. I am most sad about the prime views of "my harbor" are being blocked by new condo and hotel buildings. Fortunately daily I pass a section of town where there is a panoramic view of the harbor. I could not live in a place that doesn't have a "tide chart". I love knowing when it's high or low tide,somehow that matters.
