Description

Date/Time: March 13, 2000, 1:30 p.m.
In this case, the only landmarks I could use to line up my camera were the Victoria Bridge and St. James Cathedral. All the other buildings are now gone or hidden from view. I also compared the angle of the street to be sure it was the same, and chose a slightly hazy day, to match the conditions under which Notman worked. As I set up and took the picture I wondered whether Notman would have liked the view today. I think he would have, because was a very modern and progressive man.
