Unfortunately, I don't have a date for the before picture.

Too tiny for a report so I thought I'd pop it here.

I agree. Incredibly powerful with people in too - shadows who once lived there. To see it now? Wow so different!

What a difference between the two photos. Looking at the fashion of the girls dresses you would be able to guess approximately the year. Maybe they just moved in as the house and garden looks new. Has the gentleman got a satellite dish behind him? Could be a time traveller.

Sad but incredibly beautiful too.
I did wonder why someone would have taken the seats but not the frames - fire explains it!

These are amazing. @HughieD that home is huge and looks almost as if it could be fixed up again. If you have a ton of funding.

Loxley Tunnel on the Stafford Uttoxeter Line, also known as the Clog and Knocker line. The line was in use up until the 50's, I figure the top photo was taken previous to 1950 when the line was busy. Bottom photo I took about 5 years ago, at which time the far end of the tunnel had been blocked off.

Old photo from Wikipedia 'An airman of the 401st Bomb Group updates the operations board. 13 January 1945.'

The only original bits are the two beams.

I love before and afters although unlike Changing Rooms or Ground Force (sounding old there) these are a bit sad.

Looking at the lack of heading above the tunnel, its construction was probably forced on the railway company by a landowner who did not want to see the smoke and steam of trains from his house. Quite a common thing in the 19th century.
