#9 Engabreen Glacier, Norway, 1889 - 2010

The valley of Engabreen has changed a lot and has become more fertile where shore meadows, birch forest, marshland, and willow thickets have established themselves after 120 years. Before in 1889, there was more of glacial gravel, ice, bare mountainsides, and water, presenting a hostile and cold landscape.

Even the guy is not the same as before...

#24 The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France, 1900 - 2017

The Seine bank during the world’s fair of 1900. The “Globe Céleste” was one of the main attractions next to the Eiffel Tower. It was a monumental divine globe of 45 meters in diameter, in which visitors could sit in a chair, while panoramas of the solar system were passed over. The ball was carried by 4 pillars, between which elevators and stairs allowed the visitors the ascent. In the “Marerama”, the building with the four corner towers to the left, visitors were simulated to be on the deck of a ship with a panorama of the large Mediterranean ports. The exhibition pavilions located directly on the shore on the left were dedicated to navigation, trade and navigation.

That globe looks so cool! We wish it was still there!

#29 The Grinnell Glacier, Montana, USA, 1911 - 2008

The 1911 photo shows Grinnell Glacier poised at the top of the waterfalls in the foreground and joined with what is now called Salamander Glacier in the background. Grinnell described this wall of ice as being 1,000 feet high in 1887. As of 2008, that wall of ice is gone and Grinnell Glacier is not even visible in the contemporary photograph. Instead, it is behind the buff-colored ridge just above the waterfalls. Salamander Glacier lies along the Garden Wall below the ridgeline. This glacier is thinning in the middle so rapidly that it will probably be in two pieces within a few years. To the upper left is the small, rounded glacier, Gem Glacier, that until recently had not shown signs of retreat. It, too, is now becoming smaller.

Really very sad!
