Ghosts of Time – WWII Photos Then and Now

Ghosts of Time with photos from WWII overlayed over those places today. This series was created by Adam Surrey, and you can look him up on Facebook. Anyway, with these Ghost of the Past photos, we can have a better perspective of what happened and where. These photos help us see that history really happened and the places it happened do exist today. Well, we all know that things actually happened, but this way, they become even more real than they are now in our minds.
