No More Pigs

You will understand this title if you saw yesterday's post. Here is what the same location looks like today.
The Transit Hotel is still around although it is currently closed for a complete renovation
How amazing, I think I prefer today's version :-)

Lovely street capture! Although, I'm a vintage fan. =)

hmm, more interesting with the pigs, but if I were there, I'd prefer the modern.

Glad you didn't try to recreate the original picture. I tried a middle of the street picture once, about 2am local. Was watching both ways, no traffic, about a minute later the world lite up with flashing red lights (LEDs weren't the thing then). Was told to get out of the middle of the street.

How nice that it’s still there looking the same. Lovely shot.
October 22nd, 2020  
Yes today's picture looks a lot more becoming.
October 22nd, 2020  
Love the low down angle here
well done
October 22nd, 2020  
It’s nice to see it’s still there ,built to last!!
October 22nd, 2020  
Wow the hotel still looks straight out of an old photo
October 22nd, 2020  
I love pictures like this, a time slice
October 22nd, 2020  
Time changes people and places,it looks a busy place now.
October 22nd, 2020  
Love the Hotel building.
October 22nd, 2020  
Well it certainly looks calmer in this photo! 😊
October 22nd, 2020  
Quite different from the pigs scene!
October 22nd, 2020  
Great city scene.
October 22nd, 2020  
How times have changed - but the hotel hasn't!
October 22nd, 2020  
Watch out pigs!!!! You'll be run over.
October 22nd, 2020  
Good to see the building well preserved!
October 23rd, 2020  
The building is basically the same
October 23rd, 2020  
Kat
Wow still there amazing.
October 23rd, 2020  
Love that the building didn't really change from the outside!
October 23rd, 2020  
Great comparison! I don't like cars. They changed our environment so much. We have cleared forests for new roads and we are following these roads in search of forests. Nonsense. I prefer that old view.
October 23rd, 2020  
Had to go back to yesterday's shot t o see if it is the same building which it is. A big difference in the atmosphere of the city since then. I am really enjoying these then and now shots of your city.
October 23rd, 2020  
Wow! How things have changed.
October 23rd, 2020  
It sure does look different. Nice comparison.
October 23rd, 2020  
What a contrast the years have made for this intersection.
October 23rd, 2020  
Another fascinating comparison. I like that the impressive Transit Hotel still survives.
