108 Years After

Molo Novo, Livorno
The south end of the “Molo Novo”, also known as “Diga Curvilinea” (Curvilinear Breakwater).
Vintage postcard, Molo Novo, Livorno
Almost the same angle in this 1907 postcard, when a few ships still moored there.

Yep. When I was there in 1907 it looked just like second picture. Okay, I'm not that old.

Love your photo! That's the first time I've seen the and in the background. Beautiful!

Well apart from that white addition and the fact that there is no beautiful ship, not much has changed!

I love this comparison VP.. I have a feeling, at least I hope, that this scene will be very similar in another 100 years.
