When I'm bored...
« on: January 26, 2017, 15:04 »
One of my favourite pastimes is searching for old photos.  Lately I've added to this by using Google and Street View to compare the original photo with a current view.  Apart from the fact it often leads to new detecting opportunities, it's quite jarring to see the images side by side sometimes.  

Not the best example, but you get the idea.

Looks like different front windows now and maybe a different door. How old is the black and white shot?

Old photos provide some interesting info for the detectorist. Where they parked, entry points, directions,  Where out buildings, stable, sheds were that have long gone.

With the world evolving at such a pace, it's nice to see some things that don't change....

Love the "old vrs now" photos Sambo...

My own family "before and after photos" relate to my grandfathers construction work... his brother was a Civil engineer.... my grandfather...a supervisor......I'll throw a photo on the thread (mainly to show I'm a proud grandson!) ;)
