Lübeck Inner-City Marketplace Past And Present Comparison
I shot the image some weeks ago when I walked through the inner-city of Lübeck. I wrote about the marketplace in Lübeck a couple of times, for example about the christmas market last year or when I uploaded an image that shows a part of the architecture that surrounds the marketplace.
In the last post where I showed a part of the architecture, I did also upload a public domain image from 1905, I will attach this to my new post here too because this time I show my new image from a very similar angle. As it is nearly the same perspective, it’s a cool comparison of the market in the year 2015 and 1905. Past present photos are pretty cool, maybe I should do this more precise next time, and maybe even more often generally. So, let’s take a look at the photo that was taken in 1905…
If you ask me, the architecture that is surrounding the marketplace looks a lot more consistent in 1905. The white building you can see on my photo, that is the town hall of Lübeck, they painted it white years ago. White looks not too bad, but as said, it is simply not consistent with the rest of the architecture. My second opinion is that they also should plant some trees again and the fountain fits very well to the surroundings in 1905 too. That are my only complains, other than that it still looks the same. What do you think?
