Thanks for taking the time to do that. I'm very interested in seeing those.

That's a great picture. That's a perfect blue sky like 9/11.

I'll only say because other forumers should know about this: He was brigged over an inappropriate tag in another forum. SSC members should know that mods can see who writes tags so it's a good idea to keep them clean and on topic.

Notice the antenna under construction on the North Tower, this was most likely taken in 1978/1979.

These have been linked to numerous times in this thread over the years, but I'm going to do it again since there might be newcomers who have never seen them. They are a collection of albums of Windows on the World done by a guy who worked there. What a beautiful restaurant.

The third album is the best, IMO.

I've seen bigger images of those same pictures, but yet I can't make them bigger on the site you just showed me.
