Geography 1840 Chris Muckle 14122628 4/10/11 Exercise 2: Repeat Photography Between the years of 1907 to 2011 there have been drastic changes in the urban landscape of downtown Columbia. In the century since 1907 the changes in human civilization have been more expansive than any other century in history. There are several changes evident in these two photographs, one of which has made the largest impact in the photos. That is the advent of the automobile. In the historical photo, there is a horse drawn carriage parked outside the building to the left. In the modern photograph this carriage is contrasted by a handful of cars either driving by or parked along the seemingly expanded roadways. It does appear that the roads have had extensive pavement changes since the early 1900’s, which shows a shift in technology in roadway engineering as well. Also, as opposed to there being one like at the corner of the road in 1907, there are at least 10 street lights visible as well as stoplights which have also been added because of the rise of the automobile.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
