Then and now

This section will be devoted to pictures of then and now. I will look to add photographs of people and places taken in the past and compare them with up dated photographs.

We may see some duplications where I have used the same photographs in their correct section on the site.Paul Hotchkiss and Gary Durban have assisted me by taken modern photographs in order to create this page.Dates are not accurate in some cases just educated guesses
