Cool: Old Houston Photos Mashed with Their Present-Day Houston Equivalent
Houston Press staffer Abrahán Garza likes to meld Houston's past and present together.
He goes around town matching up old postcards to present-day sites, something he saw on the Web a year or so ago.
"I'll find a remnant in the old photo I will try to match it up perfectly," he says. "It's definitely a plus when it's an existing window or a doorway. I love when locations still have the original awnings, windowpanes or doors. I believe it's sad when I find a location that is now a parking lot where once stood a beautiful, interesting building with detailed, thought-out architecture that no one would ever know about today."
