      The cars look their from the 50's in this picture. I don't think this is 1943.

      Mark, thanks. We're still trying to hunt down the proper dates for these... as most of them are taken from slides that we're still doing some archeological work on finding out the correct dates when not listed.

      Good grief, a whole town built especially for Nuclear purposes. I probably shouldn't compare this with the Nuclear closed cities in Russia, but.... I guess when the ordinary worker on the street is guaranteed a well paid job, a good house and fine amenities, it all looks rather nice & good.
      On first glance, it beggars belief what this is really all about. Extremely creepy, what a handful of people at the top can decide upon and make it look moral at the end of the day to the small man at street level. It all sounds as if it could be a scifi story. Eureka
