Vintage Postcards: A while ago I wrote about an ongoing side quest to find the exact locations of each photograph in a series of vintage postcards I've collected to display in the finished chalet.
Update: The first one is found! Kathleen Southey in Otham's card is matched! See them below side by side. I haven't quite managed to capture the glassy stillness of the 1950s photographer yet - damn that Alpine wind. Will keep trying over the summer. In over 50 years, that view clearly hasn't changed all that much - can't see the detail of the structure at the far side of the lake in the '50s image, but I assume that the modern looking structure that is there now has replaced whatever was there previously.
The Plan: So - the plan will be to print these out side by side and display the 'then' and the 'now' somewhere in the finished property. In the meantime, now I've found the photograph spot, I'll keep trying to find a still day to improve on the shot.
One down, two to go...
