Photos taken almost 40 years apart show London changes | Telegraph

Photos taken almost 40 years apart show London changes | Telegraph | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

"A collection of photographs taken almost 40 years apart show how London's streets have changed. In 1973, civil servant John Hutchinson photographed areas in London which were under threat of redevelopment. He feared the Victorian buildings that had survived the Blitz would be lost forever, so he set out to photograph them for posterity."

Thanks to @EnglishinComo for having me discover the pictures !

One in 8 Million - New York Characters in Sound & Images | The New York Times | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

 

Double-clicking on the main picture unveils a series of photos illustrating an autobiographical story told by a central character. The whole lot offers moving & interesting portraits -brief bits of NYC lives- as for me they sound/look great for building comprehension tasks...  & analysing visual documents as well ! Help yourself :o)

The Jury Clerk, who says 'Good morning' 200 times a day, and means it. [...]" and so many others. :o)
