Then and Now – Queen Mary University of London Clock Tower

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.

I posted about an intentional photograph, where I took a photograph of the entrance to the Queen’s Building in May 2022, that matched one I had taken back in August 2019 on a previous visit to QMUL.

As I took that photograph I turned around and took a photo of the clock tower.

It would not surprise you that as I went back through my photographic archive to upload the August 2019 photo of the entrance, there was also a photo I had taken of the clock tower.

Not quite the same, but close.
