While I was at it, I looked up a few other 9/11 retrospective pieces.
"World Trade Center, around September 21, 2001"
Zombietime (possibly around late September, 2001)
"These photos were taken at Ground Zero, the World Trade Center site in New York, in September of 2001.
"They were taken by someone named 'Ed' who was allowed into the area by a member of the emergency response crew, at a time when all civilians -- including most journalists -- were forbidden to enter the area. As a result, these photos are among the few close-ups ever taken of the World Trade Center site so soon after the 9/11 attacks...."
Zombietime seems to have tried to determine the actual date these photos were taken.
There are other photos available online:
- "World Trade Center - New York City 9-11 Terrorist Attacks
GlobalSecurity.org - over a dozen images
- "ALL STORIES FROM: World Trade Center"
- "Seven years since -- looking back and forward on 9/11"
The Big Picture, boston.com (September 10, 2008)
- One of the best collections I've seen - well over a dozen photos, labeled and dated
That, I can live with.
