A good photography can sometimes really stop time, capture a moment and preserve it for future generations. And slowly as everything else changes and fells a part the scene captured in that picture will remain forever the same. It is extremely exciting to look at old pictures like this and then compare the way something looked like in the past and the way it looks now.
Have a look at this interesting collection showing how old black and white pictures of some place perfectly fit in with the background, when the setting behind it is exactly the same place, only 50 and more years latter.
These photos are from Russia and they show the sites of Sankt-Peterburg, that was also named Petrograd and then Leningrad, until 1991, when it changed again to Sankt-Peterburg.
This city had a really exciting and vivid history. In this photos you can see the combination of modern day look of this city and the photos in black and withe are from the World War II. These are the captions of the great siege that lasted 872 days and had catastrophic results.
During World War II, Leningrad was besieged by Nazi Germany and co-belligerent Finland. The siege lasted from September 1941 to January 1944. The Siege of Leningrad was one of the longest, most destructive, and most lethal sieges of major cities in modern history. It isolated the city from most supplies except those provided through the Road of Life across Lake Ladoga, and more than a million civilians died, mainly from starvation. Many others were eventually evacuated or escaped by themselves, so the city became largely depopulated.
This somewhat symbolically represents that the memory of those terrible days is still alive in people’s minds and that they will never forget of their history.
