As a guy who likes history and architecture, I love before and after photos, seeing how areas have changed over the years. I found this really great website called Yesterday LA, which promises “a tour of LA through vintage postcards.” It does not disappoint. I focused on Miracle Mile because that is my neighborhood. I like when the “after” photos are taken in virtually the exact same spot as the “before” photos, so I tried to do just that.
