Both of my parents have been gone for awhile and I have their old photo albums.

I was just going through some of them and found photos of a 1993 cruise to Alaska on the Rotterdam!

There were some pictures of Ketchikan, Sitka, and Juneau. Also shots of cruising Glacier Bay. 
I’m hoping to recreate some of these photos on our next ?? Alaska cruise.

Cool... I do love seeing then-and-now comparisons like that. My dad did that with his old apartment building in Budapest in 1970 and 2002... It was amazing how little actually changed in 30+ years (though perhaps not as surprising when you consider how little had changed in the 100 years before that).

 

I'd love to see the collection if it's scanned.

I would love to see your comparison photos as well!

 

Before our first Alaskan cruise, I came across an old photo of Skagway on the internet and decided I would try and replicate it while we were there. Surprising how similar the photos were with nearly 100 years between them!

How fun it will be to compare.  I have inherited some old 16mm film reels from my Grandfathers Alaska adventures 1960' early 70's,  trying to find a movie projector that works so we can view them.  If they have not deteriorated will have them transferred to CD for the family.    Will be interesting to see what he filmed.
