Then and Now

I’m really feeling awful today, so this is a short one.

Last year for Christmas, I got my parents a calendar of scenes of Utrecht taken around the beginning of the 1900s. I then went around town trying to get shots of the same areas as they look today. Some areas hadn’t really changed much at all, while others are barely recognizable. One of the areas that has changed little is over by De Drift canal. The buildings remain basically the same, other than a few ground level changes. See for yourself:

  1. Sucks to hear you are not feeling too good. I hope you feel better soon.

    I always love seeing old photos of familiar places. I remember when I was little our local library had photos of how the area used to look and I was fascinated by them.
