Then and Now Take Two – Queen Mary University of London

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.

Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.

Back in August 2019 I was attending a round table discussion at QMUL as part of my job. I took this photograph of the entrance to the Queen’s Building.

Queens’ Building, QMUL

I did upload this photograph to Google Maps. It is my most viewed photograph I have submitted with Google Maps with nearly three million views.

So when I was back at QMUL in May 2022 I decided to (try and) take the same photograph.

As you can see very little has changed.
