Through he's notched a similar compare/contrast effort with photographs from 1961 and 2009, this time blogger Paul Sahner has implanted a nifty toggle that allows readers to see the entire historical shot, or the entire modern-day equivalent in the same spot?and thus quickly assess the evolution over time for themselves.
