I checked Google Maps, but it appears Alexandria has yet to be photographed by their street view team. I'm tempted to head to this location over the weekend and compare today with then. I know for sure that the streets are less muddy!

Lewis Hine took several pictures of workers in the Old Dominion Glass Factory in Alexandria. It's interesting to see the town about 50 years later.
