Hoags Corners - Then & Now
Old photographs that capture places as they once were can be revealing when you try and see precisely the same place as it is today.
Way back in the late 1980s, when we lived in Hoags Corners, I borrowed some historic photographs from people in the area that showed what the hamlet was like in the late 1880s - a century before.
And then, as I am prone to do, I attempted to reshoot these historic scenes from precisely the same vantage points - to connect the historic views with the modern landscape.
This exercise ended up making connections through time and revealed how things had changed - or how they had stayed the same in spite of the passage of time.
Melodie was in charge of a little group of Bluebirds (which was sort of a Campfire Girls Club offshoot), and as a project they created a poster of "Hoags Corners: Then and Now".
This is a web version of that project.
