"Cities & Memory - 5. In Maurilia, the traveler is invited to visit the city and, at the same time, to examine some old postcards that show it as it used to be: the same identical square with a hen in the place of the bus station, a bandstand in the place of the overpass, two young ladies with white parasols in the place of the munitions factory."
Invisible Cities, Italo Calvino, p. 30

    I have that juxtaposition for Kathmandu. One of the old pictures has you in it.

    Our office building has recently hung some old photos of Sydney on the corridor walls, which is interesting.
