Guanajuato Then and Now

These are overlays of the city of Guanajuato, Mexico, past and present.  The older images date from 1967 and 1976 and came from my archive of old travel images.  The 2014 images were taken by me this past September.  I’ve tried to match the vantage points as best as possible.  Click the slider in the middle of the image and drag either way.

    This post is amazing, thanks so much for the photos and the comparisons! I’m here in Guanajuato right now, just for 3-4 days, but I am constantly amazed by the architecture and all the colours and textures. And I always have this feeling I’m in the past, a feeling I don’t get at many places around the world. Thanks again for this.

      It’s a wonderful city and I’m glad you enjoyed the photo comparisons. I’m hoping to do more with some other cities in Mexico in the future.
