Then and Now: Coming next week
It’s not unusual to look at old streetscape photos and marvel at how much the look of our communities has changed.
Businesses have come and gone. Depending on how far back you go, horse and buggies have been replaced with cars and trucks on our streets.
Fires from the past have dramatically changed present-day landscapes.
At times in those photographs you have to search for architectural details on buildings to know exactly where it is you are looking.
Except for the times that entire buildings are gone – then you need a keen sense of the past and present to decipher locations.
In our Oct. 10 issue of the TriCounty Vanguard, we will be presenting a special themed feature called Then and Now.
We will compare streetscapes from back in the day to the present day, and we will also draw comparisons to things happening now by looking back decades and even longer.
Explore with us changes in technology, but also ways in which the past continues to be the current way of doing things.
Find out how an old historic building has given a new evolving trend an old soul. Revisit childhoods.
Revisit news events.
Revisit how we, in the newspaper business, used to get the news out to you. There’s been a lot of changes.
It’ll all be a good and interesting read and we’re looking forward to presenting it to you in print and on our websites next week.
