The top picture of Main St. in Afton is from about 1919. The second is Main St. taken from approximately the same place a few days ago. Where did all those buildings go? I don't know why I continue to torture myself by making these comparisons between the old and the new. I guess it's because of my fascination with the cycle of life, whether it be animate or inanimate objects that are affected. I don't really have anything else to say about this, but apparently I do get perverse pleasure from mourning what used to be. At least the streets are paved now.
