Taken by my mother on their honeymoon in 1948.
Legal Note: I inherited the photo collection when my parents died and therefore own the copyright.
The modern view is here.
very kewl photo! i inherited our family photos too! kat
Thanks kat. I love old photos so it was especially good to go to this location and get a modern comparison.
great idea.......i definitely love the before and after photo....
Many thanks, Rafael. I am glad that I was able to find the exact location, though I felt a bit strange standing in the eact same spot as my late father had, 60 years before.
Nice idea !
Thanks Juergen. The result was much better than I expected.
Wonderfull pair Skida, so many things changed over the years but also so much that stayed the same... Great historical and sentimental value captured there ! :)
Many thanks Andre. I just thought of another comparison: The 1948 photo was taken on a Kodak Box Brownie and the 2008 photo on a Kodak Z812IS!
Both a Kodak, and the Box Brownie and the Z812IS are also represants of 2 different generations... :)
Where your father had to be carefull as a vampire in the daylight, with the roles when opening the cam... then the anxiety of waiting until the film was developed... the great care in not smudging the glossy paper with dirty fingers when holding them for the first time...
Ah, the romance of those glory days of photography... :)
If I could afford it I would also use film photography. I loved my Olympus system!
Fantastic :). The before and now brings a smile.
Thanks, whoelius. I wish I could find more old photos to make comparison shots.
Nice looking laddie with dark hair and nice smile
This picture of your Father causes me to pause and enjoy for a while.
--- Thank you ---
Thanks AH. Your rhyme made me smile as it reminded me of an old friend.
