The really amazing thing is how little the Whitehall has changed in those 100 years. It's not really that much different today, thought the evening I saw 20 Ferraris parked out front (owner's club convention in progress) the view was somewhat updated!

This is an interesting picture.  The road is dirt at the time, but the car in the lower left looks like a pre-WWI model.  My guess is that the picture was taken around 100 years ago in 1914, before the US got into WWI.  Amazing changes in 100 years--but still very few flying cars.
