THE DIFFERENCE OF A HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE

ENTRANCE GATE TO THE CITY OF DORDRECHT NETHERLANDS

 

This was one of the entrance gates to the (now inner-)city of Dordrecht in the Netherlands. The gate was demolished in 1870 to create more space for the incoming traffic (didnít help much). It was purchased by a demolition contractor January 11, 1870. He paid 700 dollars for it, including three of the surrounding buildings.

ORTAKOY MOSQUE IN ISTANBUL TURKEY

 

This mosque was designed by architect Nikolas Balyan and commissioned to be built by Sultan Abdulmecid in 1853. Ready in 1854. We would claim the glass hand tinted stereoview below to be one of the first pictures of this mosque. Second picture shows the same building in the year 2000. Behind it you can see the great steel suspension bridge over the Bosphorus, which was built in 1970-1974.

AVENUE DES CHAMPS ELYSEES PARIS

 

This avenue was designed by Andre le Notre in the late 1660ís. Before that is was just a swampy area. In 1836 The Arc de Triomphe was erected. You can see it vaguely at the end of the avenue. Avenue des Champs Elysees is famous for itís big historic parades.

As you can see thereís only one difference after 150 years: Back then the photographer could take it real easy and make his picture. Nowadays a photographer has to risk his life to get the same picture!

MAINSTREET LITTLETON NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

Littleton is the little town famous for itís stereophotographers, like Ben Kilburn and Frank Weller. See the difference created by 140 years of progress. The 1860ís view is an origin Kilburn stereoview. The 2004 photo was made by Jason Hoch, present town-manager of this great historic town.
