Casey Copeland, a lifelong resident of Mount Shasta, said he was interested when he recently found a picture online of North Mount Shasta Boulevard, taken in 1940.

“I am a photography enthusiast, so I wanted to recreate the photo,” Copeland wrote. “I went to the exact location and took a photo from the same angle on February 1, 2018.”

Seen together, the photos show the difference 78 years have made.
