    actually in the wrong position, your current day photo should have been shot further down the street most likely at the intersection of main and akard

    I started out there but that ended up being way too close so I had to walk further down Main. This parking garage was the only viable option to get around all the trees.

    If was taking the exact same picture without showing anything around it then, yes, Pegasus Plaza is where I would have needed to be located.
