Photoshopped then and now images are fun to look at, but I don’t post many because I’ve always felt that for the novelty of the images you give up a lot of the frame of both pictures to get a good overlap. Besides that, they’re also a lot harder to do! Still, they can make an interesting comparison. Here’s a few from some of my pictures I’ve previously posted.
The Powell Street Cable Car Line: Pretty girls are pretty girls no matter what century.
Chinatown in the 1940’s:
The Golden Gate Bridge Promenade in the 1940’s:
Maiden Lane in the 1950’s:
Clipper Cove at Treasure Island: When I took the recent picture of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge the old cantilever bridge hadn’t been demolished yet.
The Golden Gate Bridge in 1940:
When trains and streetcars roared under the Ferry Building Pedestrian Bridge
Bathing Beauties at Aquatic Park in 1939:
Danny and I at Ocean Beach, I think it was around 1898. I’m a lot older than I look!
