I saw it [as it was] in these pictures

“Have you looked at the new exhibit, The City Lost and Found?”

Husband: Yeah – I grew up in New York, so during that time I saw it [as it was] in these pictures.

“How was that?”

Husband: They brought it back to a period where it wasn’t in its finest, is the main thing, but that’s the reality.

“Do you think it depicted New York accurately?”

Husband: Yeah, oh yeah, definitely. What happened in Watts too, though I was really young at the time, but I remember all of it, but some of it … You look at it, and you vaguely remember pictures of that time. You kinda remember things from the news that went on. It’s interesting to see that.
