Our passion for photography is only matched by our love for history and everything vintage. We firmly believe that only a solid understanding of history can help us avoid repeating the mistakes of the past and lead to a better future for all. And there's nothing better than a direct comparison to really show us how much time and life have changed things.
The page features photos from both the past and the present, comparing them to each other so that everyone can truly understand how deep some of the changes are. And, in some rare cases, as in some places, everything has remained more or less unchanged for decades and even centuries.
