PAST AND PRESENT

The five galleries below are devoted to comparing the photos of locations by S/Sgt. Jerry Pinkowski to modern day photos of the location from the same perspective. I've either found volunteer photographers to walk in Grandpa's footsteps, or I've scoured the net for copyright-free images which sometimes come surprisingly close. It's amazing to see just how much (or how little) things change in almost seventy years.
