Broadway Albany 1938-2015 dissolve

The c. 1938 photo is from the Pruyn Collection at the Albany Public Library.

As luck would have it, Albany Archives shared a photo of Broadway in Albany just north the intersection with Loudonville Road from around 1938 -- before Nipper began sitting atop the building -- and we happened to have a photo of more-or-less the same spot from just this past week.

So we put the photos together in a dissolving gif -- from 1938 to now. Have a look in large format.


Well, the cars are different.

It's interesting to see both the transformation of the house to the Argus Press and the decline of the Argus Press all in one photo. Very cool!

That's really cool. More please...

And this is why I love AOA! I learn something new every day or see something differently everyday.

Say Something!
