It doesn't look like much has changed. This area of Livorno looks good. I always enjoy your before and after photos.

Robert Geiss said...

Much enjoyed. And yes, the postcard makes one look at the two again and again. Something does look indeed different. Please have a good Sunday.

I think I´m going to post some after and before pictures of my city. I hope you don´t mind that I copy your idea.

I think the tram added a special charm...
God bless you!

The tram and especially the lovely scene on the right are missing...

Still no trees?

Where was the proofreader for that postcard?

Such history where you live!

Ovviamente qualcosa è cambiato, ma non tutto...bello il palazzo sullo sfondo! Ciao, Arianna

If only that charming tram were still around today...but how recognizable it remains, a lovely contrast and street.

Fantastic, love these.

Quite a difference. I think I prefer the tram before the modern cars.
