Squint Shot 062111

If you check out yesterday's 'then and now' squint shots, you will see a ca. 1957 photograph of the northeast quadrant looking westward and a current day one.

After I had taken yesterday's squint shot, I walked farther eastward on East Grand River and looked back to take a similar shot of a ca. 1923 photograph. As with the previous photographs, it is almost difficult to tell these are the same blocks, except for the skyline shown. So many things have changed -- especially from 1923 until current -- with storefronts, telephone and light poles, trees, even the roadway.

Oh, and the guy talking on his cell phone in front of the red brick building -- certainly different from 90 years ago!
