Bombing of Dresden aftermath

First part of Bombing of Dresden series: “Dresden before”

 

This picture depicts two pictures in colour: the one in the left is an original colour photography of Dresden in the 1890s, the second one is a modern re-colourisation I’ve done. Dresden was and still is a city in Saxony, Germany, which lies in a valley on the River Elbe, near the border with the Czech Republic. Its population was 649,252 in 1933, and its historical and heritage, invaluable. In the left side buildings like the Dresden Frauenkirche can be seen, with the Dresden Cathedral at the left. The bridge’s name is Augustus Bridge. Some of these buildings were reconstructed in the 2000s, stone by stone. In just one night, between 13 and 15 February 1945 this skyline would no longer exist.
