Time travel through history-part 1-cityscapes

I enjoy very much looking at these old pictures of my town.
I invite you to travel with me through history in different times.
This is the Hero's Avenue today, it connects two important squares of the old center; the oldest Union square (main square) and the Avram Iancu square.
There is not much change on the architecture over the centuries, though I must admit that developers did a great job by painting the buildings in barbie town colors.

The next pictures are captured from the opposite direction, the other end of the avenue.

I can see a little train there in the middle of the road in the first photo, left.
Transportation is definitely changed, though the old was more environment friendly.

See some great reflection of the buildings at the end of the street.
Thanks for keeping company!

I love the history to be found on old towns. I looked mine up too. The pics are great and i like the way you showed the contrast from then to today.

Thanks for sharing. It certainly had progressed and changed so much since way back then in 1916. What a beautiful town you have there. Striking shots and very colourful photos as well. :-)
