  1. What a shame.

  2. These are all dated on the same date, but the trees vary, the front steps are intact in one photo and collapsed in another. Is it possible that the date noted is when the file was created?

  3. Whoops, my mistake! I took the photo captions verbatim from HABS but apparently added the same date without checking (it’s a separate screen on the HABS website, which is annoying). Apparently the images other than the first are from Jack Boucher’s trip in 1972. I’ll change the dates on those. Thanks for being our eagle eye!
