I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

These age reversible images are uncanny, naturally the faces are gone, but despite war damage the buildings are so still the same...same arch ways, windows, chimney pots, the water fountain......

Thanks for posting these Jointy :-)) .........Derek

Fabulous images  :-))
 
I got the feeling that the ghosts of the past were very present in the images of the present...

Fascinating!  I'm was interested to see that the Weymouth Lifeboat is moored in the same place in both photos.

Very good. I like the first one. You can see how far lifeboat technology has moved as well.
