World War I in Britain, Then and Now
Take a look at this interactive Web site contrasting historical photos taken in Britain during World War I with contemporary street views. Fascinating! The site was created by a British real estate company, of all things. I was struck by the continuity in many of these photos, even where structures suffered significant bomb damage. I would love to see a comparable time-lapse comparison of, say, streets in Los Angeles. If you've come across something similar in your travels through the ether, let me know; if I come across anything like that I will post it here.
