I was in the library archives the other day, working on a side project I thought of, when a woman named Heather introduced me to the coolest website ever! History Pin is a place where you can add old and new photos of landmarks! Lets say you wanted to add a picture of a courthouse in Chicago that doesn’t exist anymore. You would find where it used to be located and you can insert a photo on top of what is there now. You can fade in and out to see what it used to look like and what it looks like now! You can also put pictures of buildings that still exist, of course, and you can see how the landmark has changed throughout the years. Try it out!
