Wakefield Then and Now Photo Contests : 2010 and 2011

Beebe Library’s “Wakefield Then & Now” photo contest asked entrants to select a historic photo of Wakefield and go out and take a matching photo of the same location today. This collection includes the original images and corresponding entries from the 2010 contest. The Beebe Memorial Library's second annual "Then and Now Contest" was held during the spring of 2011. Entrants in this digital photo contest were asked entrants to select an historic photo of Wakefield and to take a matching photo of the same location today. As an added twist to this year's event, however, the photographers then created a "mash-up" of the two images. This collection includes all submissions to the 2011 contest.
