I really like seeing modern views of places shown in old pictures. This looks much the same, just fresher.

Wonderful before and after.

No change, only the people and the lamp post. It gives a sense of perenity, of longevity. Nice!

Wonderful research to find and replacate this old picture. I always find before and after historical images fascinating.

The same buildings, same angle! Only the Levantine Trader would look out of place today in Livorno (but maybe not in Jerusalem). :)

Unbelievable how it's still the same! You must take very good care of your buildings! :D

Traveling Hawk said...

A nice comparison. It seems nothing changed, only the people...
