Default LAPL before and after photos

This guy did a great job of finding places where archived Los Angeles Public Library photos were taken. He then re-photographed from the same perspective. The street scenes are particularly interesting. He has other collections too, many of which are from the San Fernando Valley.

Fascinating.

Interesting to see the maturing of trees in some of the photos.

That was a terrif stroll down memory lane - reminds me of the little shops and theaters you would see everywhere back in the 70s. We had a Thriftimart with the big "T" a few blocks from my house which I remember from when I was about three years old, and I was so surprised to remember it when I saw it in that Encino picture. It sparked my memory of Boys Market on Hawthorne Blvd. too - I loved when my mom would shop there because they had those shopping carts where the bottom was high up, so we as kids could ride below. Back then we would see housewives with their heads full of hair curlers, in their robes and slippers smoking a cigarette while they pushed their shopping carts around the store around 9 o'clock in the morning. Can't imagine seeing anything like that ever again!

Thanks again Charles for the memories - I thoroughly enjoyed that slideshow.
