I was very touched yesterday by an article in the Daily Mail and the photos presented:
The remarkable pictures overlay modern scenes from France with atmospheric photographs taken in the same place during the war.
Historical expert Jo Teeuwisse, from Amsterdam, began the project after finding 300 old negatives at a flea market in her home city depicting familiar places in a very different context.
Photos of allied soldiers after D Day on the streets superimposed on those same streets today. They are evocative and thought-provoking . You can see more of the photos by Jo Teeuwisse on her Flickr page
and follow her on her facebook page
LEST WE FORGET!!!!!
