Historic Indianapolis: Then And Now

It has been a trend for a few years to do time-lapse photo comparisons — for example, look at a photo of your childhood home, and take a new picture from the same angle in present day to see what has changed. It’s fascinating how places change over the years.

I found this article from Historic Indianapolis interesting, as well as sad. It illustrates how many once-prosperous Indianapolis neighborhoods have changed and declined over the years, and also how little we in modern days appreciate the beauty of spaces like this:
We’ve created a few then-and-now comparisons of Franklin Township properties, which have been on display in the Meeting House in the past, but we’re always looking for more historic photos. If you have pictures or sketches of local property in bygone days, we’d love to see them!
