Historian consultant Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse has created a fascinating series of photos which she calls "Ghosts of History." The series consists of mostly old World War II photos of various places overlapped with a modern photo of the same place.
|Teeuwisse: Cherbourg, avenue de Paris, ancien Poste de Police, jardin Public|
|Teeuwisse: Rue Dom Pedro, civilians and American soldiers tear down the sign indicating the headquarters of the Todt organization in Cherbourg|
|Teeuwisse: rue Armand Levéel à Cherbourg|
It seems Teeuwisse wasn't the first person to utilize this captivating technique. Photographer Seth Tara created the following series for a 2004 History Channel ad campaign titled "Know Where You Stand."
