Remembrance Day: World War II Photoshopped Onto Europe’s Bikelanes

You may be familiar with the excellent work done by Alden Cudanin of  Toronto Before… where he “re-mixes” photos from the past with photos of the same spots today.

I thought something similar may be interesting to post today on Remembrance Day on BikingToronto.  The above photo is from Cherbourg, France, specifically right here on Streetview, where a bikelane exists today.

The Atlantic recently had a great piece on these “Then and Now” photos from World War II.  I encourage you to check it out Scenes From World War II Photoshopped Onto Today’s Streets
