We love this modern replica of Robinson Street and Grove Avenue, Richmond, VA taken by @vndls.

It was taken with the new Andoid app which let’s you find historical photos nearby and take exact modern equivalents. This historical photo wasn’t overlaid on Street View before, so this replica is particularly interesting because it’s created a modern comparison.

Looking forward to seeing more historical images linked to the present, bringing to life all the moments, big and small, that have happened in the spaces of our neighbourhoods through the years.

See the photo on the map and fade from the present to the past.
