Good find JG6 Oddball http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Its surprising how many of those locations seem to get through unchanged but when ive viewed photos of where i live during the blitz damage you would see entire streets vanish into rubble and a few houses at the end totally untouched http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
Some of those places damaged remain the same today like a church which was hit and never rebuilt although it serves as a good reminder

A lot of those shots brought back memories of my time in Nuremburg. 'Then and now' books specific to the city seemed to be in most homes I visited. Incredible how the place was rebuilt.

Something insightful and witty needs to be said about the swastica being replaced by the golden arches in that one sequence. I just can't think of it at the moment.

There is always something very emotional about seeing things like that. Even in my own personal experience I was able to compare images during the my time in Kosovo. I often wonder how much it has changed by now.

It does not have to be war that changes the landscape. I have a big laugh at WW2 factory photos of aircraft being flown over what is now the L.A. basin or San Fernando Valley. What was then agricultural farms is now nothing but housing developments and shopping malls. Old pictures being compared to the present is always interesting to me.
