    These are superlative!

    Amazing, I’ve done the same with Amsterdam during WW2, but only a few pictures.
    What a lot of work!
    Very well done, thanks for sharing.

  • jufjo

    Could you please share a link to the flickr collection so I can add my compliments there as well?

  • Chris

    Sure. Sergey has not put these images on flickr, though he has put three similarly beautiful images there…

  • Chris

    Your Amsterdam images sound very interesting, Jufjo. Are they online?

  • MsMoll

    These are stunning - the history right there on the streets.

  • Martin Fenton

    If jufjo will pardon me jumping in here, his images are at
    http://www.flickr.com/groups/amsterdamthenandnow/pool/ and are equally stunning as these. It’s the background commentary that really makes them come to life. That and I know Amsterdam quite well, so they have some resonance with me.

  • Chris

    Thanks very much Martin. Jo’s pictures are indeed stunning.

    Very very cool project. Love the juxtaposition of current/past photos.

    I did a similar project recently myself, though with a different execution- photos my Great-grandfather/grandfather took. A Century Later
