On This Spot began in 2013 as a history-focused travel blog. Taking photos from the same perspective and superimposing them over one another creates a lasting impression and is a striking way to tie history to a physical place.
Our mission is to allow users to compare the old with the new through historic photo cross-fades, learn about local history and culture, and appreciate long-gone architecture.
We believe there is great value in understanding history, and identifying with people of the past. It is only through knowledge of what came before that we can truly understand the society we live in today, and the possibilities for our future.
