LETTER: Then & Now images tell the tale


Editor’s note: This letter is addressed to our own Sarah Schofield, the mastermind behind our recent Then & Now special section.

Editor: Hello, Sarah, I wanted to write and tell you that you have done an amazing job blending past scenes in Chatham-Kent with present day pictures.

I find the initial example of an almost demolished Harrison Hall against the modern day backdrop to be particularly effective.

I don’t know whose idea this was, but it’s brilliant and graphically illustrates the changes that have taken place in well-known buildings and places.

I really hope that you will do this again.

I have trouble imagining what things used to look like having moved here in 1979 and you have allowed me to see the transformation in a way that explains what words can’t.

Thanks so much!

Sheila Gibbs
