      You might have seen this before, but here’s a Russian lad who does something similar

      I always like these retrographs…I particularly like the one of the car “in” the road, I live in Bristol and recognise this place clearly. must have been terrifying.

      While images such as these are amazingly well-done, I always wish that we’d also get to see the unaltered images, separately.

      I especially feel that way with the image sets where someone is holding an old photo over a location… without knowing how the location looks today, it loses a lot of its allure to me. I love to compare the images and see just what has changed, and you can’t do that if details are obscured.

      Never seen anything like this. Amazing This is the London that my mother tried to describe to me when I was starting work in the city in the sixties. She had no photos it was just words.

      These remind me of the images of the Streetmuseum app

      Truly amazing!
      I love this window-to-the-past theme. Please, if you have more of this, share them!

      Another excellent post! thanks!

      I love this type of image. I can only imagine how terrifying the blitz must have been. The contrast between freshly bombed and current image is amazing.
