This unattributed  photograph (above), published in  Frank  in April 2012, showing the old
Dominion Public Building in Amherst, is eerily reminiscent of my photograph (second above)
taken in July 2003, nine years earlier, of the same building from the same camera angle.
There has not been much change in those nine years.  The pennants on the building.
The green tree leaves.  The flag.  The shadow angles.  The cars in the street.
