San Francisco - From Vertigo to Now

A couple of weeks ago I was standing in the recently opened Norm & Nates deli, which is just down the street from the school. I couldn’t stop staring at this huge 16×20 photograph they had up on the wall. It was a photo taken from up in the Paris Building looking East down Notre Dame street in 1936. Surprisingly, because of the local heritage commission, and the rather well-preserved Exchange District, the view was quite similar to what is there now.

I’m totally head over heels with this stuff:

Vertigo Then and Now

I love seeing how cities change over time. I think I’m going to do a similar project for Winnipeg (minus the famous movie, that is) - first I’m going to need some old pictures of Winnipeg, though.
