Completely underexpose by mistake, but I love this portrait. I tried to salvage it using the Imacon scanner, but this is the best that it could do.
The word suburb mostly refers to a residential area, either existing as part of a city or as a separate residential community within commuting distance of a city. Some suburbs have a degree of administrative autonomy, and most have lower population density than inner city neighborhoods. Suburbs first emerged on a large scale in the 19th and 20th century as a result of improved rail and road transport, leading to an increase in commuting. Suburbs tend to proliferate around cities that have an abundance of adjacent flat land. Any particular suburban area is referred to as a suburb, while suburban areas on the whole are referred to as the suburbs or suburbia, with the demonym for a suburb-dweller being suburbanite. Colloquial usage sometimes shortens the term to burb.
