Old and New

I realized that I now have many recent photos taken from the same vantage points as a number of the old ones on the site, thanks to contributions by many of you! And it was suggested I put up a page showing both views, old and new, side by side...so here it is!
Things have changed a bit over the years!
On the left it's February 1943, on the right it's March 2002. Both taken from the same spot on Beech St at Kentucky St. looking east.

On the left it's 1918 and you're looking west down Beech St from New York Ave. On the right it's spring 2002 looking from the same vantage point.

On the left it's sometime in the 1940's and the Ocean Crest Hotel. On the right is 2002 and I believe the building is now called the Hoffman Manor, though it went by many other names over the years. It's at Laurelton Blvd at the boardwalk.
Left, the Hotel Nassau at it appeared around 1910, on the right as it appears in 2002. National Blvd and the Boardwalk.
The Nautilus Hotel Fire in Atlantic Beach, 1959, on the left.. on the right is the view of the new Nautilus in 2002. Notice the dome of the resturant on the left still is visible (barely) in the new photo. You are coming across the Atlantic Beach Bridge in these photos.
The Nautilus Hotel, standing on the same piece of the Atlantic Beach boardwalk looking East, 43 years apart... left 1959, above right 2002.

Here's a couple more of the Ocean Crest (now Hoffman Manor) at Laurelton Blvd. The left image is probably in the late 20's or early 30's, the right is 2002.
