Lot's of pictures of my 'hood here. I live right behind where old Ponce de Leon Park was (home of the Crackers). The famous Magnolia tree is still there at least. Cool find.

Great link. We were just in Atlanta, and thought it was a very interesting city. These provide a very cool alternative perspective. Thanks.

I wish they had photographs of some of the really cool, old neighborhoods here in Atlanta, like Inman Park or Grant Park...

But overall a very cool find... Thanks!

There's also a similar site with photos of Vancouver in 1978 and 2003.

I really enjoy these then and now photos! Here's one for San Francisco, based on scenes from Hitchcock's Vertigo.

Any others?

Vermont has something like this, only it's a little different. I like the example they use on the intro page.

I live in the ATL area and these are a real kick. It's really sad seeing at all of the dingy egg-shaped econo-boxes parked in these shots versus the gorgeous cars of yesteryear. I half expected to see Robert Mitchum leaning on one, hat pushed back, smoking a Lucky Strike.
