NowThen

See in an instant how Temescal's built environment has changed over time. The NowThen feature consists pairs of photographs that juxtapose a contemporary and historic view of a Temescal streetscape or building.

Selecting any entry from the list at the right (ordered first numerically, then alphabetically) will bring up a page containing the pair of juxtaposed images. Clicking on either the historical or contemporary view will bring you to the Collection page that provides a detailed description of that document.


And the many individuals, institutions, and organizations who so generously contributed documents for use in Shared Ground projects over the years.
