    Wow thanks for sharing that article. I didn't know that it had to be reconstructed! Amazing seeing those images of the interior all empty. The last quote at the end was very interesting. I've never been in there, but it makes me wonder why they said that the modern version had lost its appeal

    Retronaut is a great site. Usually these collections are full of stuff I've seen before but not Retronaut. It's as close as you can get to the voyage of discovery that the internet used to be.
