The Majesty of the Law

Piazza Guerrazzi, Livorno“Piazza Guerrazzi” without the “The Majesty of the Law”. Looking at the uniform in the old picture, the man was probably a soldier and not a policeman. We are again comparing a 1900 picture from the book “In Tuscany” with the same place today.The Majesty of the Law, In Tuscany by Montgomery Carmichael, Livorno
“The Majesty of the Law” by Pietro Rossini (circa 1900)

This is fun. The building looks the same. The old uniform is impressive.

I'm always amazed at the fanciness of the old uniforms and hats.
The horse and carriage is fun to see too.

Apart from the peoples clothes nothing has changed much VP, love 'now and then' comparisons.

It is terrific to see the two scenes compared. The uniform is quite remarkable.

Exquisite idea to compare old photos with new scenes.

Not that many changes but it looks so much more lively back in ca. 1900...
