A Street Tour of Los Angeles in the 1940s Compared to the 2010s

This is remarkable. Filmmaker Keven McAlester re-created, shot by shot, this vintage footage of the Bunker Hill area of Los Angeles. The two street tours of the city, which follow the exact same path except where current road blockages make that impossible, are shown in split screen format in this video, nearly perfectly synchronized with one another. It’s an amazingly vivid illustration of how drastically that city has changed in the intervening seventy-odd years.
