Eastgate St in Chester: 1890s meets 2013

Eastgate St in Chester: 1890s meets 2013

Photo Information
A composite of the famous watercolour of Eastgate St by Louise Rayner, painted in the late 1800s and several photographs I have taken. This was a very complex piece and is several weeks in the making.

I had to use many photos as Louise was quite ‘liberal’ with the point of view she painted. Impossible to recreate from one shot alone.

What I find quite interesting are the Georgian buildings to the left of the Boot Inn (right side of the image). These no longer exist and were replaced by mock Tudor buildings which if you saw them today you would think were built at the same time as the genuine Tudor buildings that surround them. It gives you a unique point of reference.

Yes, I've done a few others - here's one of Northgate Street as it was in 1972 surrounded by an image I took recently.

Absolutely superb Bob, you deserve for this to be exhibited (I think it might be?). It must be of great interest in your locality - I hope that you get this published.
