Jo Teeuwisse, a Historical Consultant in Amsterdam and a master Retronaut, combined found WWII-era photos of Amsterdam with contemporary shots of the same places to create a series called “The Ghosts of Amsterdam.”

After discovering some negatives at a flea market and scanning them onto her computer, Teeuwisse then went to each of these Amsterdam locations to take more recent shots. She then merged the two together to make the past come alive. It’s a wonderful way to pay tribute to our past and remember the ones who came before us.
