Yesterday and today.jpg

It’s illuminating to look at the same places with one hundred years or so between there-and-then and here-and-now. Here are some of the historic pictures in the two walks into the past on other pages, juxtaposed with the same view this summer: 2018. (In summer, of course, the trees tend to obscure the differences, even though they are part of the story. So with luck another, winter, view will be added later.)
