Rephotography, the practice of taking historical photographs of places in their present condition, provides a novel approach to evaluating how time has affected a place. Images from the past and the present can be compared to reveal how much and little has changed. Vintage Photographs In Real Life, a community on Reddit, offers amazing side-by-side photos that highlight these contrasts. See a few of their most stunning images below.
