THEN AND NOW: The Entrance to No. 45

 Looking west from the entrance of No. 45, then and now.

The original photograph, made around 1928. 

In 2022, the most marked difference are the cars, both in numbers and size. The cobblestoned road was replaced by asphalt in 1952. As for the Lich Gate, it disappeared around this time too, as part of the neighborhood upgrades for the U.N. And finally, there have been remarkable advances in awning design.

    With the exception of the automobile’s looking so much better now, everything else looks pretty much the same, which is lovely.
