    Judging from those pics, LA was already ugly in 1955.

    I can see where I work in the last one.

    I also dont see a difference on the 1st one. Giant old ads instead of giant new ads

    Maybe its my taste but Hollywood and that English place were eyesores then and are eyesores now, they just changed the paerticular style of eyesore.

    The French spot before and after is equaly unremarkable.

    Have we worked out if this trend of newly registered, right wing users is one troll?

    Why is Snooki a rep for women?

    Is Vin immortal? He had an ancient Paris alcohol store.

    A cig store became a Gap? That's kind of an improvement, really.

    I wonder how clean those B&W pics would be in color.

    Unless there are cities from areas that collapsed into decades of war, or environmentaly destroyed areas, it's all nostalgia.

    If an area is gaudy "then" it will probably be gaudy now, and the improvments and the improvments such an New York metroplitan area today as compared to the 70's and 80's and most of the 90's.

    The only made ugly area otherwise would probably be the Rust Belt areas, and that like the aformentioned areas has nothing to do with taste in architecture or signs.

    you don't need to be a right winger to know most of your posts are utter gems.

    you contribute just about nothing in almost every thread youre in. yet if someone has a different opinion from you, you label them names and belittle them. I told you before that's easier than coming up with a logical argument perhaps ever. something you rarely ever do.
