Comparative views..

I've been wanting to start a blog that would celebrate Prescott as it was, featuring some of my husband's post card collection. I hope to involve some old timers, like my husband and myself and perhaps showcase some of their memories and stories.

I had planned to use this old post card of Gurley Street looking up towards Elk's hill as my header. This morning I ran across Jarat's pictures on Prescott Daily Photo featuring much the same view taken at two different times.

It's too much of an opportunity to pass up, so to see the view from today and the sixties and then compare it to somewhere around 1900 is rather fun.
