Description

Date/time: September 13, 2000, 1:25 p.m.
I like the idyllic Sunday scene Notman captured in this photograph. I tried to replicate it in my photograph by catching people doing modern Sunday activities. To locate the exact spot I walked around the park in search of a building with two chimneys. The building is still in the same place and is now a tourist information centre. From this landmark I walked south until the perspective appeared the same, although the road I took seemed wrong at first. As I was shooting I spoke to an older man who assured me that indeed the road used to turn in the other direction.
