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.
