Village photos - 100 years ago and now
East Dean, England. Click to enlarge and see how little has changed. Blogged to show that humans are not causing deforestation of the entire planet. In many parts of the United States as well there are now more trees than there were a century ago when they were harvested for fuel and when more area was needed for farming.
The comment thread at Reddit is predictable, although I did get a chuckle out of this one - "That's very pretty. I can only imagine how excited everyone must have been when they brought in color. It really livens up the place. When was that, and do the old people still speak fondly of that day and tear up a bit?"
