The Society of Friends of Cultural Heritage in Split (Društvo prijatelja kulturne baštine Split) shared an interesting image of Split on their Facebook today which was recorded on this date 142 years ago.
One of the things I like about following Split online is the sheer wealth of historical photos which are constantly added by some many people with an obvious love of the city. Just by following a couple of pages, it is possible to build up a great understand of life and the traditions of Split in years gone by.
And sometimes one photo puts into persective the massive change which occurred in the 20th century, as the city's population exploded. A photo like this one, posted today on the excellent Split kroz Povijest (Split through History) Facebook page, showing Split at the beginning of the 20th century from the air.
Looks a little different, doesn't it?
