World Book Wednesday

Volume N

New Hampshire- The Old Man Of The Mountain was the symbol of New Hampshire until it fell down in 2003.
This photo was included in the 'Places to Visit' section of the New Hampshire article.  After it fell,
do you think it was still included with an update, or just deleted from our collective conscious?

New Orleans- The French Quarter in New Orleans is old-fashioned looking to begin with, so the photo below could have been taken yesterday, but...

...the ad on the side of the trolley says, "Al Hirt is in Town."
When's the last time someone got excited about Al Hirt? Yep, 1978.

The World Book Encyclopedia. Chicago: World Book-Childcraft International, 1979. Includes all photos and quotations
