Sad to say goodbye to Elisabeth Wynhausen. Happier days, 1989, New York City: John Tranter, Leon Tranter, Lyn Tranter, Elisabeth Wynhausen, Kirsten Tranter, after lunch at Katz’s Delicatessen. (And see below.)

“With worsening air quality spoiling the view, authorities in Hong Kong have come up with a novel solution for snap-happy tourists – giant panoramic billboards showing what the city would look like if there weren’t so much pollution, for them to take pictures of.
