Very nice. I love this type of comparison photo.

And a pretty good one, I'd say. The Scarva St. one would reward another visit in better lighting conditions, but otherwise very interesting. Certainly a project worth pursuing.

Very nice! Great to see what a century of wealth and invention has done (and not done). Pity there aren't more fluffy trees today.

This is really neat. You lined up the photos quite well, and I'm a lot more surprised by all the continuity than the discontinuity. Most places, despite their supposedly ancient and timeless character, actually change all the time (Damascus is like that - it's unspeakably old, but most of the oldest houses are no more than 300). This place, though, has mostly survived, at least in its outlines.

from the visual
the current, it cuts. It makes you want for pictures prior to the camera shots you have, and it is thinky. We've just had a wide swatch cut out of the local woods here, so I am thinking about that. Also that the house I am typing from is built on scree from the Falls, shifted when they built the Mlls here.

I really like the contrast between the thatched roofs on the houses on Hill St. then and the tiles now, and the way there's a car where there used to be a horse on the Main St. photos. It's really interesting how much hasn't changed more as much as things have.
