Related, thought this would be appreciated.  Placed some of the then/now images at a UK site I'm a member of.  Someone responded with these words and two pics...

A troop of American soldiers stood next to a WWI Memorial in 1944 on the day they liberated the town of St. Marie du Mont, Normandy, France.


Simon and Richard's homage to them last year...

A well known curve on the Million Dollar Highway in the San Juan Mountains, 1924...


86 years later.  Not quite the same direction as back then, but serviceable...

Really cool and motivating.  My wife and I just bought a house in an historical town in Tenn late last summer.  This thread gives me the motivation to get out and do some of the same type of things in the Tenn./Ky area.

Thanks!

What an amazing thread. Thumbsup I really appreciate the time and effort you took to dig up old pics and take new ones at the same angle.  I wish I had the patience to do the same.

Thanks all.  A few more.  Paused at the motorcycle destination spot of Deckers today.  Great riding in every direction.  Gold medal fishing abounds in the Middle Fork of the South Platte here.  Saw some rainbow whoppers snacking on natural flies as I strolled along the river finding where the photographer stood long ago.  There's a fly shop (Flies & Lies) here.  The river and dirt roads of 100 years ago have been rerouted.  Most of the structures are gone as well.  Oh but those hills remain unrerouted...

Facing north, the river and road crossings of Deckers back then...


Climbed the hill overlooking Deckers in the motorcycle gear.  Could have scrambled a little higher to the rock the individual is sitting on, but would have been amidst a dense stand of trees...


It actually was quite the idyllic place back then.  Good fishin', good game in the forests, etc...


And you know, the fishin' and the huntin' remain good, as does the ridin'.  A guard rail and a seriously big tree nearby prevented me from a slightly better perspective...


And one could even refresh in a lithia bath back then...


Today...


The old Deckers post office and store was to the north of today's structures.  Can see it in the first old image above, across from the large dark building...


Just an empty and small grassy field, with a hillside more populated with trees (very typical nowadays)...


The Morrison school in the late 1800's...


I think it is a residence now...


Bear Creek would rampage through Morrison periodically after heavy rains would soak the canyons above town.  The dam at Evergreen ten miles to the west put a
halt to the unruliness of the water, but not before this flood 80 years ago, with mud the photographed aftermath...


The tamed stream is behind me in this "now" pic...
