I think you are correct about the photo with the truck as the steps behind the truck and rocks look like the steps and wall that lead up to the Casa del Mar restaurant. but I could be wrong.

That's exactly what I thought. A pity the picture isn't at a slightly wider angle.

Not exactly aeons ago, these were taken by me in September 2006. The area is almost unrecognisable from what it is now. The fishermen still used the beach then.

Best I have been able to do so far with this one. Modern building has blocked every angle from where the original was probably taken.  I had to climb up Rua das Palinhas, above the square, to even see the church. The tall building to the right of the church tower is where the Vila Recife hotel now stands. Just about the only other one that is recognisable is the small building just left of centre, 'below' the church. I will try to have another go at this one with my better camera. Click the picture to see it full size.

Well done Cubsur.  As well as the angle I suppose the camera lense focal distance will be a consideration too. Thanks for doing these.

Yes focal distances, picture frame sizes etc are often a problem. I plan to go further up the hill this afternoon to try to get a better rendition. But obviously the original was taken from a place lower down than is now possible.

I agree about the building below Left of Church, and it has now gained an extra floor. The tall building to the right of church is now the reception of the Hotel Recife.

Tried but no luck. There is just too much in the way. Make the best of these as you will.I took a couple of others while I was up there.

I think the only way you would get close to the original is with the use of a drone.

I guess so. I know someone who has one but there are probably 100 laws that would be broken if using one above town. There will be others to investigate I am sure.

Enjoying seeing these pics. Lovely to see the 'then and now's, thanks Cubsur.
In the Church pic, there is a domed roof building to the left of the front of the church. Is this building in both pics?

Yes, the domed building is just visible in both pictures. It is dome of the former São Sebastião church, which is now an art museum.

Ah yes, we would have passed by many times on our way from Pateo, when we stayed up there, down to old town. Hadn't seen it from that angle before
Thank you for keeping us updated until we can visit again.
