STONEHENGE, the grandest prehistoric monument in the British Isles, is at last in sight of the end of its troubles.

“Preservation was assured some years ago, but its essential setting, the vast solitude of Salisbury Plain, was lost during the war and has never been recovered. First the war, then tourists, broke in upon the silence and spacious emptiness of Salisbury Plain, but plans for protection are afoot.”

The New York Times, October 16, 1927.
