Mercury Monument, Then and Now

Mercury Monument, Then and Now
The image on the left is from a slide taken by my grandparents in early 1965, the one on the left I took in August 2009, showing the same scene today.

Unfortunately, the printed image I was using as a reference was not complete, cutting off at the corner of the pedestal. It was also nearly impossible with my D-80 to get the perspective to match the original image, even while crouching down to simulate an old slide camera held at chest height (judging by the crossbar on the monument, I obviously didn't crouch down enough).

The people in the photo are other tourists, no connection to my grandparents (ie: I don't know who they are).
