The Buick Super is a full-sized automobile produced by Buick from 1940 through the 1958 model years, with a brief hiatus from 1943 through 1945. The first generation shared the longer wheelbase with the top level Roadmaster while offering the smaller displacement engine from the Buick Special. The Super prioritized passenger comfort over engine performance. For several years, it was called the “Buick Eight” or “Super Eight” due to the engravement on the grille while all Buick’s since 1931 were all installed with the Buick Straight-8 engine with varying engine displacement.
This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. I quite like those Then and Now comparison photographs that you see in books or on the Twitter or Facebook. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester.
I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart.
Bristol Temple Meads is the oldest and largest railway station in Bristol, England. It was designed by the famous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1840. It’s a major transport hub for the city, connecting Bristol to other parts of the UK and beyond.
