We visited the American Academy in Rome the other day and found an archive of photographs by Georgina Masson from the 1950s.  These center around Campo de’ Fiori of course.  Juxtaposed next to them are photos from today, and even though they are not of the exact same view as the archival photo, they do give a sense of the change or lack there of.  The market today seems to have more people [tourists], inventory [more exotic], and commercial fervor.
