A view of Old Town Alexandria, in 1980

view from Alexandria House
View of Old Town Alexandria in 1980

This is a view looking South from Alexandria House in Old Town Alexandria. They say Old Town never changes, many things have changed in this view since 1980. Can you spot them all?

The Woodrow Wilson Bridge was destroyed and rebuilt. The water tower and structures at Ford’s Landing are long gone and in it’s place are luxury waterfront townhomes. None of the high-rises in the Carlyle area have been built and of course the Henry is nowhere to be seen.
