World Trade Center Under Construction: Old and New

I don’t know why I was looking up the One World Trade Center. I guess I wanted to know how far along they were in building it. Anyways, on the wikipedia article, someone posted a photo of the tower under construction from just two days ago. Then I was reading the article on the original towers, and found a picture of those towers under construction (sometime in 1971). I thought the two pictures looked similar and would look good side by side. I’ve got nothing to say, just wanted to share the photos:

The old photo can be found here, and the new one here.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I like seeing these two photos side by side.

  2. I actually photograph One World Trade a few times a month. Great thinking putting the original next to the new. It’s important to always have historical perspective like that.
