The following three sets of pictures each feature two images taken from exactly the same angle, but from different time periods. Work with a partner to first describe each picture and then compare and contrast the images.

Describe – what is in the picture? What is in the foreground and background? What are people wearing?

Compare – discuss the similarities

Contrast – discuss the differences.

Additionally, see if you can guess from which era the photographs were taken.

1: The Old Pub and New Flats

2 The Old Tram Depot

3 The Old Lodge House

Optional Exercise.

Share your own photographs and get a partner to describe and compare and contrast what they can see.
