“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

Interesting Then & Now composition using an old photo taken during the widening of Barnstaple’s Queen Street. If you’ve ever been in the Olive Branch and wondered why it’s long & thin – here’s why. Well, you’ve probably never wondered why The Olive Branch is long & thin – but now you don’t need to. 😉

Peakes Grocers – Barnstaple Then & Now


“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

Here’s a Then & Now slider of a long gone family grocers in Barnstaple’s Coronation Street. Always a sucker for an old shop-front, I couldn’t resist turning the old postcard into a Then & Now composition when I saw it pop-up on eBay. If you look closely you’ll see the brickwork matches up exactly in both images when you slide the image backwards & forwards .. not a bad effort considering I borrowed the “Now” image from Google Street View! 🙂 JP.

Barnstaple Strand – Then & Now


“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

100 years between these two photographs taken down on Barnstaple’s Strand, but with the exception of disappearance of the building nearest to the camera on the right – the old fish market – not really a lot of difference between them at all

84 Barnstaple High Street, Then & Now. They don’t *quite* make shopfronts like they used to, eh?

Pilton Street #2 – Barnstaple Then & Now


“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

This Then & Now slider of Pilton Street uses the same “now” modern photograph as yesterday’s upload, which you can see here: Pilton Street #1. A few years have passed, we’ve moved onto motorised vehicles and there’s plenty of architectural changes to pick out. Hope you find it interesting.   JP.

Pilton Street, given the Then & Now Slider treatment. I was in two minds whether or not to upload this one as it’s not quite right, the church isn’t perfectly lined up, which is really annoying. But I actually really like it regardless, what a beautiful area packed with history.  JP.
