Photographers have been documenting the world we live in for nearly 200 years, since Nicéphore Niépce successfully managed to put an image on paper. Albeit temporarily. There’s been enough photography since those early days to create some ‘then and now’ comparisons, which is exactly what the Museum of London have recently done with a collection of old image of London. How many locations can you identify?
But it’s not just photographic comparisons that can be made. Video has also been going a while. Long enough for this side by side comparison of the UK’s capital city. It’s always interesting to see not just how places have changed, but also how large parts of them have stayed very much the same.
