One of my colleagues at Colonial Williamsburg has started a new endeavor he is calling the 35/15 Photo Project.  While he introduces the project better here, in a nutshell he is reshooting images of Colonial Williamsburg taken in 1935 today in 2015 (hence the 35/15).  Personally I am interested in the evolution of the physical landscape of historical places over time.  However, most of my experience is with Civil War battlefields (I think of William Frassanito’s Gettysburg Then & Now: Touring the Battlefield with Old Photos or Roger Linton’s Chickamauga: A Battlefield History in Images), so I was excited to hear about AJ’s project.  So I encourage you to check out AJ’s blog http://historyscout.blogspot.com/ and learn more about his project from the photographer/historian himself.
