Scali Novi Lena

Scali Novi Lena, LivornoThe recently restored “cantine” under the “Scali Novi Lena”. This street runs on the eastern side of the “Darsena Nuova” (New Harbor), where the ships built at the Orlando Shipyard were once launched. A short canal passing under the swing bridge links this stretch of water with the “Porto Mediceo”. here is, during the rowing season, the finishing line of the Coppa Risi'atori.Old postcard, scali Novi Lena, LivornoIf you look at this old postcard from the early 1900s, the only substantial difference is the building of the Nautical Technical Institute Alfredo Cappellini, now standing just in the middle of the first picture.

I just love your old and new comparison images!

Jack said...

Your photo of the "new" scene is excellent. I like seeing your new and old comparisons. Yes, this is very similar today to the scene from a century earlier.

Fascinating VP. How lucky are we to be able to see these comparisons today. I love it so much when things basically stay the same, maybe with just a few improvements.

So surreal to see the similarity. Happy birthday, my friend! :)
