1. Marker Vandalized
Google Earth shows the street view in June 2008 and October 2013; both dates show a vandalized and missing marker. (In 2013, the remaining post is further vandalized from its state in 2008). I was wondering if anyone can confirm that its in place currently or at least at a time after these dates?
