The first time I saw pictures like these, I was floored. It combines photography and local history, which are two of my favorite things, so I couldn't resist trying some of my own! It was a little trickier than I expected, and sometimes you run into issues like something else being built where the picture was taken from, which makes it impossible to get the shot. These are the three I've done so far, and I'm sure there will be many more to come!
