A carefully designed and accessible book filled with beautiful photos of Antwerp in the past and in the present. Next to every photo from days long gone youll find a very recent photo of the same spot. The difference between the two is often astonishing. Sometimes the street or square is unrecognizable, but most times youll discover little landmarks or small details that you can use as a point of reference or a hint. Because thats the fun part, of course: to try and guess which location in Antwerp it is that has changed so thoroughly through the years. This book is a true conversation starter for all ages. Its especially fun and interesting as a bridge builder between different generations, and a perfect gift. The recent photos in this book were taken by architecture photo-grapher Jeroen Verrecht. The historical images were picked out by the popular Antwerp city guide Tanguy Ottomer; he found many true gems in public and personal archives and collections. He also shares something about every photo an interesting anecdote or a surprising fact. Time Machine is Tanguys fifth book with Luster Publishing about Antwerps past.
