Coriolistic Anachronisms

   

Bridge Over The River Hudson

Convergence of wild lines and wide lanes

They say time travel is still science-fiction. I beg to disagree. We have already invented it and use it on a daily basis. Sort of. A few centuries past, leaving Cape Town bound for New York, one would have had to follow the clipper route…
