The past mixes with the present to create something magnificent.

It is said that a photograph is worth one thousand words. They capture a moment and it exists without an expiration date. Regardless of what changes in the present those special photos can take you back to a familiar place. Below are 16 photos that place the past into the present, the results are magnificent. Thank you to Jason E. Powell and Bob Egan for their contributions.
