Those who are interested in history are going to love this post. This article is going to portray the historical buildings, places, and landscapes and how they have changed over the course of time.
Re.photos is a stunning website which collects "before and after", "then and now" kind of pictures. Through this central hub, we have brought to you a collection of such amazing photography to show how the World has changed drastically within few years. Have a look!
The white building is still there. Amazing!
Another peaceful picture from Norway with no such changes.
More crazy before and after pictures exist from Dresden associated with war.
Oans, gsuffa, zwoa!
The previous one had more buildings, but the present one looks more serene as there have been many trees added.
It is the intersection of Ratajczaka and Św. Marcin Streets. "Skrzyżowanie" means "crossroads" in Polish.
Context: The above picture is shortly before the Chernobyl meltdown (the employees and their families lived in this nearby town).
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...
The above picture looks like to be taken somewhere in 1930 instead of 1900 as judged by the cars. In 1900, the place actually looked like this and in 1915, this building was destroyed by a fire.
Is this a fairytale.
restoration at its finest
Almost entire original construction was destroyed in WWII. The existing one was completed in 2005. Some of the parts from the original construction like black bricks still remain in the current one.
The old one has a more romantic look.
We can survive & rebuild from the rubble.
Isn't it amazing that how streets and roads took place of original field boundaries?
the quote on the sign is still valid...
Doesn't it look better without all those bikes? Although it is a healthier way of getting around compared to cars tbh.
This is so neat.
A much better look.
New Bridge has a sturdier look.
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!
Does it remind you of Mr. Darcy's house in Pride and Prejudice?
Oh, who moved that chair?
Retained the cobblestones!
I assume this place has been transformed into a well-constructed church!
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!
