I think it's interesting but the after's don't appear to have been taken at the same location as the before's.

These are only a few of the cities that have changed in the last 50 years. It would have been interesting if the pictures could have been of the same locations, instead of some other angles or sites.

why don't you take a look at the Detroit Michigan then and now. It's a 180 degree turn around

I agree with all of you! It would be interesting to see the difference with pictures from the same location and in black & white. Some of the changes are NOT for the better. Especially Fortaleza, Brazil. What a way to destroy a beautiful coastline!

I wonder how many people had to be forced out before these changes could occur?

Wow, how much cities have changed, even though maybe the locations are different in the befores and the nows, I get the idea. Dubai has certainly grown.

While I understand they weren't all taken at the exact same site (Melbourne for a start, as that is Southbank, along the river), some of these I definitely prefer the before shot. (My dear Melbourne included) Sometimes, such vast change takes away a lot of charm.

A lot of those photos show 70-80 years of change, Toronto shows 92 yrs. of change, Melbourne shows 102 years of change, no kidding things have changed! Things unthinkable in the before photos.

I liked the few sets of pictures that were from the same perspective over simply differing views.

I'm with everyone else...the pictures should have been of the same location.

THE CITIES HAVE LOST THEIR EARLIER ORIGINAL LOOK AND HAVE BECOME SIMILAR LOOKING CONCRETE JUNGLES.

Thanks, but like women and makeup, I much prefer the unimproved look to the fake glitzy look.

I am torn. Progress? Conspicuous consumption? Cookie cutter sky scrapers for the sake of whatever?

It shows how progressive the country is. Unfortunately the "before" was not the "after" as shown in the picture - seems they are on different places/location.

It would have been better if the after pictures were taken from the exact or close to exact same spot.

It is a shame, the photos have not been taken from the same angle. There are no comparaisons to make ,

I think the makers of Miracle Gro have been selling huge quantities of their fertilisers to these cities!!!

I think they should have used the same view points so we could actually see the differences!
