Topic: 2 Views in Time

Topic type:

Draws together images of the same places or people taken at different time periods.

The intention is to show how places, e.g. streetscapes, landscapes, buildings, have changed over time or in the case of people how fashions, settings or backgounds may have changed,  and to illuminate social and material history.

The 2014 Photo Hunt included a new category "Two Views in Time"  in which entrants submitted two photos of the same place or person.  These entries have been linked to this topic.
