The above shot of Rice’s Point is from the Cliff’s Barber Shop Collection. It is from early 1962, as near as I can figure, making it 50 years old. The new Blatnik Bridge (at right) appears to be not quite completed in the photo, and the old swing-span Interstate Bridge seems to still be in use.
This modern-day shot is from April of 2011. I didn’t shoot it intending to get a comparable shot to the one above. It’s an interesting coincidence. A few hours after I acquired Cliff Johnson’s slides, but before I looked at any of them, I went for a hike on Goat Hill and shot this photo. Later in the day I borrowed my parent’s slide projector and saw Cliff took a very similar shot back in the day. Weird.
