The above shot of Rice’s Point is from the Cliff’s Barber Shop Collection. It must be from early 1962, as the new Blatnik Bridge (highlighted in the smaller image at left) 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 up top. 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.
