I love to see these comparisons in time VP, quite amazing how this building and the buildings across the street are almost exactly the same, but the way of life would have changed dramatically.

Fa sempre un certo effetto vedere le foto d'epoca per confrontarle con quelle d'oggi! Buon ferragosto, Arianna

Lol, I wonder what delays them these days though!

The absence of difference is really striking and somehow, I like it!
