    Post 1944 vs 2014...

    This is really neat!!




    Now this is an incredible use of technology---like traveling back in time!

    Left click and hold on each photo and then drag your mouse gently from

    left to right on the original photograph and it will become a photo of the

    exact same location and view today - drag it back to the left and you are back in 1944!

    Scroll down for more of the same. Just fascinating!

    Thanks for the link.

    My husband enjoyed those pictures. He is a history buff and thought is was really neat to see.

    I'm shocked at the number of buildings in the background that are still standing and unchanged.

    These are so interesting. Did you notice that if you pull across the picture slowly you see the ghost of the old photo overlaid on the new photo. Thanks for sharing

    It's really cool if you swipe slowly, you can see a shadow of the past in the present. Thanks for sharing.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I just shared this with one of my colleagues who teaches a course about "Families in the Military" and she was fascinated. She hopes to use this in one of her classes. Thanking you for these amazing photos.
