It’s no secret that the world is definitely not like it used to be. The present time has obviously changed from the beginning of recorded history, but the difference is usually left unnoticed until it was clearly pointed out.

The website re-photos took the popular “before and after photos” to a whole new level. The site encourages photographers to recreate historical pictures, and the images reminded everyone how much the world has changed.

Most of the before and after photos were taken over a hundred years apart, which is why the difference is quite understandable. However, even photos that were shot just a couple of years apart still managed to show a considerable change in these historical places.

Although changes in these historical places were mostly a result of the modern era, some of them were caused by the aftermath of World War II and were completely rebuilt to preserve history.
