Last summer, Reddit poster MisterBrick found a collection of WWII photos of his home town of Dijon, France. He decided to go re-take these photos in the exact same locations so he could see what a difference 70 years makes.
1) Free French Forces arrive on Sherman Tanks in front of the palace.
2) German officers pose in front of the park fountain at Parc Darcy.
3) Allied troops entering the city through the main street.
4) The post office displaying a large French flag after liberation.
5) Soldiers guarding the entrance to a building.
Then And Now – WW2, Dijon, France
6) Soldier poses in the middle of the street.
7) The main street in Dijon, you can see Guillaume’s Gate at the back.
8) Cars parked in the square outside the palace.
9) German troops gather outside the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy.
10) The Luftwaffe headquarters, now just a florist with some residential property above it.
