Old pictures and comparisons

I've always found it very interesting to compare pictures taken at the same location a period apart, but in the glut of 2008 pictures anything from (say) 1908 gets swamped. However - here are two I took the weekend before last - the first being of a history board at the station showing the scene as it used to be (1909) and the second showing the current scene, as photographed by myself.

Now - here's another challenge. This old picture is of the river Cam in Cambridge. Can you guess how old it is?

Old picture of river Cam

I had lunch today with a photographer - someone who had been a professional photographer, in fact, and enjoyed hearing his comments and experiences. And I thought that having a camera our with me, as I did on Wednesday evening in Cambridge, helped me make something of the lovely weather and time in spite of me being on my own. Walking alone isn't my idea of pleasure, and having a dog to walk "with" wouldn't suit our lifestyle. But a camera does make a good doc substitute.

Than picture above? Oh - it's 2 days old now - I took it in Cambridge myself on Wednesday evening. Isn't it wonderful how a bit of sepia toning can make a picture totally mislead you - or had you guessed?
