panorama of crowd at south park blocks

The crowd at the South Park Blocks.
These seven photos taken from a lamp post. They show about 180 degrees of the view altogether (like if you turned your head from all the way left to all the way right). The lamp post is on Madison, looking down toward Salmon, where the speakers' stage was set up. The stage is not visible; there's too many people in the way, and it's also down a full block from here. This was at about 12:45 and people were still streaming in at this time, and would be for a while longer. The streets on both sides of the block were filling up at this time, since the block itself was packed pretty tight.

(If you add comments to this post they're going to spread out as wide as this graphic and be almost impossible to read. Hit return to put in your own line breaks if you want to avoid that, or put them in an HTML table of fixed width, say 500 pixels.)

How to keep your comments readable 05.Oct.2002 23:43

as noted above, one way to keep comments to this article
from spreading out as long as the photo is to put in
your own line breaks. that's what i've done here.

another way is to make an HTML table and give it a fixed
width. here's how to do that:

cut an paste this stuff, below, and type your comments
in it where it says "your comments here". then, make sure
you choose "html format" from the pulldown box below the
"your comment (reqired)" box.

HTML code:

<table width="500">
