One of the types of pictures/series of pictures I find really interesting are before and after shots. This first one is of the Rices Landing National Bank Building in Rices Landing, PA, taken around 1915. Note how there were buildings behind the bank, and look at all the people!
And as it looks today from basically the same spot.
Thanx to the good people at the River Walk Cafe (current business in the old bank) for the first image. You guys make a great Filet Mignon!
