I've always been a fan of Paul Dorpat's "Now & Then" feature in the Seattle Times. I noticed a guy in the UK was making composited cross-time images by matching Google's Street View with vintage photos, so I made some of my own -- though I sometimes take my own "now" photos to improve alignment. It's been fun to time travel and think about people and events that happened in our region's past. All images can be clicked to see them at full size.

Holiday Wartime in Bremerton

Downtown Bremerton from the late 1940's, all done up with Christmas lights. That metal scaffold-looking thing just above the star is a stanchion for an anti-aircraft blimp. It's nice to see how the Roxy theater looked when it had its full compliment of neon lights.
