A few then/now of Jefferson, a small ranching community in the high meadows of South Park, Colorado.

This is from just after the train tracks were pulled up in 1937 and a dirt road placed down. That's the train depot on the left...


And it is still the train depot on the left, along with a caboose to the right offering summertime fare like BBQ, burgers, etc. The size of the community hasn't changed much over the years, usually hovering 50...


In the color image above, see the home with the white window trim? Here it is in the late 1800's...


A few decades later, some new surrounding structures, and some new area residents...


And 90 years later, some new aspen. Well not so new, but doing well. Angle of the sun is almost the same...


Looking down this residential street back then...


Maybe I'll return with a chainsaw for a better now perspective ...

For once McDonalds is an improvement.

Thanks Thumper. For sure, then and now.

As for McD, seems as though when I stop by, and admittedly I do on occasion, winds of a certain kind do emerge not long after.

Early in the 20th Century

This building was the original Women's and Children's Hospital, in Adelaide, the state capital of South Australia.



Prince George became George V of England in 1910 and was the grandfather of our current Elizabeth II
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_V





The building was built in two stages, with the right hand side wing added after the top picture (obviously).

Interior shots:





Unfortunately they have put the fire system control board in the left hand arch, so I couldn't get the identical angle.

In 2002 the building was converted to 10 apartments, and I'm lucky enough to live at the far end of the corridor in this last picture.

Wow! I am amazed how well the sand has held up to the ravages of time.

GSPep... Looks like the towers were repaired, but a decision to not rebuild the bridge.
