Some historical pictures.
The following are from a guy whose father worked at the PA from 1955 until his retirement in 1992, because of that, he could go as a teenager to the opening day of the Old WTC.

Another picture of the father's office, one year later.

This is pretty cool, the father took those pieces of ceiling of the WTC back in 1973, and installed them in the library of their house, the panels are still in his parents house in Milford CO. (the picture is from last year)

Quite possibly the only remaining piece of the original World Trade Center North Tower still in use and in good condition. (and it’s in my parent’s house, no less!) New York. 2012 por wavz13, en Flickr

The guy has more than 400 vintage pictures of NY, some taken by him during the 70' and 80', and some older, like this one showing the buildings that stood in the site of the WTC in 1966.

As a bonus, a more recent pic of the New WTC.

Open the imagine in another tab and copy the link adress, then put the link between the IMG tags

Example
-[img] *Link* [/img]

To credit the photographer, use this [url = *link*] *title/photographer name* [/url]

I don't think it works for Instagram. I've tried with FB before but it doesn't work.

It works. That what I also use when getting photos from Instagram.

Thursday's going to be a big day! The ESB lit show{9:50 PM) and 1 WTC's mast and beacon finally being lit together!

Goodnight all.
