Most things change over time, for good or bad. Nothing stays the same. That is the fundamental rule of nature. However, some things stand the test of time better than others, and it’s fascinating to see the contrast between old and new photos of the same place, taken years apart. The Old Photos in Real Life subreddit has a large collection of such photos. Shared “then-and-now” photos with side-by-side comparisons show how some things change over time and others stay the same. Take a look at some of the most amazing posts in the gallery below.

# 5 This is a wonderful 1915 Pasadena Craftsman in Bunglsow Heaven that I had the pleasure of purchasing and restoring a few years ago. Although this home was only 950 square feet, it took almost 2 years to complete the renovations due to working with the historical society and the City of Pasadena granting approval.
