Modern comparison with a famous Los Alamos view. This road junction at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA, was photographed in 1995 to compare with a famous view taken during the Manhattan Project of 1943-45, when the first atomic bombs were built at Los Alalmos. The junction is between 20th Street (foreground) and Trinity Drive. The trees are on the site of the old Gamma Building, the research offices of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Division of the Project. The buildings in the distance are on the site of the general offices and laboratories of the 1945 site. Compare this with the wartime scene in SPL picture T162/043.
