Paris 1900/2013

Post Comment

What a perfect way to end the week: Audrey Cerdan and Pascal Riche of Rue89 recently combed through an archive of 1913 photographs of Paris (taken in colorful autochrome through a project sponsored by banker Albert Kahn), then went back to each location and photographed its modern counterpart.

They’ve published the results with a digital slider that lets you compare the two. Then: streets are larger and less cluttered. Now: somewhat surprisingly, there are many more trees. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

  1. WOW, thanks for that!! I love Paris, and I love seeing how places used to look long ago, so I found this especially fascinating. I love the slider to compare the two images. Amazing!
