The cars look a bit more modern in your photo.

I love your new/old photographs, VP. This one looks very much the same, though it has had some refurbishment. Nice!

Have a happy Easter.

Looks like they added a couple of windows! The postcard is just as lovely as your photograph :D

Cool pictures. I think I like better the original arched top in the windows. I wonder what was that pile of things near the horse.
God bless you!

Not much has changed, except maybe a few windows. Cool look back to the past.

I love seeing the contrast of what it looked like way back when and what it looks like now.

Oh they've replaced the arch windows with square, not too much more change, wonder what the colour was back then VP?
