Was once the Baldwin Hills Theatre, now a Chase bank.

What you see above is an example of the very ambitious project that is, What Was There, a website dedicated to “putting history in it’s place”. It’s pretty simple really, you type in a place, see if there are historical pictures of it and look at what’s there now. The difference between W.W.T. and your average historical site is it’s excellent user interface and the fact that users can submit photos to help “make history”. It’s an incredibly interesting idea and I hope to see it grow at a rapid pace. Click the pic above to check it out.
