Lostwithiel then and now

Friday 20th November 2015

This is something I've been working on for a while, but it's really hard to get perfect. We have access to a whole bunch of old photos of Lostwithiel, so I thought it would be interesting to see how the view has changed over the years.

There's something quite eerie about finding the exact same spot that someone stood in a century ago to take a picture.

Here's an interactive version that lets you fade between the old and new images - although it's a bit fiddly on a  mobile.
