Flashback Monday: It's Only a Model!

Imagine living in the planned community of the future! Better yet, imagine squinting as you peer at this lovely model of Lake Anne and its environs ca. 1963, pondering where you'd park your oversized car with the vestigial fins, what with the obvious lack of garages and carports. Also, notice the distinct lack of mauve. The alabaster models make Lake Anne look a little like the Acropolis, if the Acropolis was set along a lakeside instead of a rock overlooking Athens and was made up of townhouses and mid-rise condos, instead of temples and whatnot.

Sales, of course, increased once it was announced the finished townhomes would be larger than 4 inches tall.
