I’ve been running my Vancouver Then and Now series since last August and while it’s been fun to scour the archives for some interesting old photos, finding the “now” versions is sometimes difficult. I’ve relied on Creative Commons licensed photos on Flickr as well as Google Maps but the best depiction would come from going out and taking the “now” photos myself. Lucky for us, Jeremy Hood has been doing just that.
Jeremy has compiled a Flickr set of over 350 images from the Vancouver Archives or Vancouver Public Library paired with his own modern day photos.
He started a blog in January to showcase them all and it’s definitely worth a browse through his Flickr collection to check out some great Then and Now comparisons. There is also a Vancouver Then and Now photo group on Flickr to which you can add your own images.
