TPI is very pleased to have added a new Then and Now webpage featuring an exciting new project by Tampa native Bryan Weinstein. Bryan searches through the historic Burgert Brothers photograph collection for interesting shots of buildings, then locates the site and rephotographs it from the same vantage point and posts it on his beautiful Tampa Changing website. The photos are an interesting study in preservation and history; some properties have barely changed, while others are only barely recognizable after major renovations and additions.
Bryan has kindly allowed his collection to be fed into the TPI website, allowing you to see which photos he has recently rephotographed, and linking to the new images. Therefore you will be continually updated each time Bryan adds a new rephotograph to the collection. We look forward to seeing the evolution of Tampa through photos!
Bryan hopes the Tampa Changing project will become a collaborative effort, with volunteers helping to find suitable Burgert Brother photos in the Tampa-Hillsborough Library Collection, locating the place the photo was taken, and rephotographing the site. For more information on helping, see the Tampa Changing site.
