Wow - I agree..this is so cool.

I do something similar with L & C sites but there were not original photo's just locations. So many of the original roads were animal and Indian migration trails that turned in to our roads of today.

You have some really neat photo's and there's obviously more. I checked out your LINK and so others know, there is a brief review on Amazon of your book.

Someone once asked, "What was the most significant invention in the last century". President Roosevelt answered, "without doubt the bulldozer".

Nice work

It's interesting to see that the before areas were so stripped of their trees. Nice to see that there are more trees now than then.

Today, busy U.S. 285 passes by the same place near the town of Conifer. Had the elevated highway not be present, could have gotten lower for a better comparison...



My house/property was adjacent to the property in this picture. It was the first place my wife and I lived when we moved to Colorado in 1995. We left Conifer in 2000 for suburbia (Littleton) when we had our daughter. Very much miss living up there. Thanks for the pic!

Appreciate the thoughts, and nice additional photos!

There can be reflections... what remains, where there is change, what vanishes. Images of people from previous generations can cause a pause, at least with me, as if then was their time on the stage of life, and now we're up on the stage. May we say our lines well, and with gusto.

In the late 1800's the townsite of Tarryall, on the magical Tarryall Road (County 77 - Park County) sprang to life with nearby gold and silver deposits... but it wasn't a long "sprang". The town also went by the unflattering name of "graball". Guess the merchants, tradesmen, middlemen, etc. charged or took whatever they could from the miners. The nearby county seat was named "Fairplay" because we "play fair" with the miners. The "garden spot" of Tarryall in the 1880's...


A riding friend and I wandered all over the place trying to find the location of the above...


The Hartsel hotel...


I pulled over here unplanned, remembering I had seen a photo of this location, but didn't have the old pic with me. Had to guess. What isn't seen/known, is the temps were 10f when I paused for this single pic, freezing my poor little digits when the gloves off! I learned the '07 R12GSADV's temp gauge stops displaying at 14f, then springs back to life when temps climb above 14f. Came pretty close...

Brian, one way to get started is just do a Google search on something like "historical photos eureka california". I just tried this and came up with a number of links...

I just love that "now & then" concept. Do you know this one?

Nicely phrased. I certainly enjoy old photos of buildings and landmarks but, like you, find myself wondering about the folks who might be in them...certainly they had their dreams, plans, thoughts, fears, etc... and they are gone now.

Can I suggest another is the humble camera.....so we can see these type of images...........history can be lost so easily.


Great thread.......would love to see something similar for Australian locations!!

Interesting. I enjoy "then and now" pics. Always like to see what buildings/structures are still standing.
