Then and Now
The last veteran of “The Great War,” Florence Green, passed away in 2012, leaving few people to share the stories of that bloody time or remind us of the world as it was… but we still have the pictures.
In 2014, the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, photographer Peter Macdiarmid revisited the locations of World War I-era images and recaptured the places as they appear today.
These old photographs overlaid on their modern day counterparts reveal how much those locations have changed, or how much they’ve stayed the same.
