Bob sent this one of the Bank (as it was) under construction. It was, unfortunately for the purpose of comparison, obviously taken from the roof of one of the buildings down the side of the square, an option not open to me!

Best Ican do is a manipulation of Google Maps 3D image, but that doesn't give quite the same perspective. The area to the right as we look has changed almost out of recognition. What was once probably an open air restaurant is now covered. The line of the v shaped wall can be discerned, but the tall chimney has gone. To the left, the modern covered terrace obscures the view of the former street line.

Cliock to see a larger size, click again when you get there for biggest size.

Just have been on the CASA DEL MAR restaurant web page and they have a few old photos I have never seen before. Click on History then read more to reveal 5 old Photos.

Thanks. There are a couple there I have not seen before so I will try to make a 'then and now' comparison.

Ok some then and nows, using the Casa del Mar photos suggested.

This one was fairly easy, the steps by the tunnel, but I shall have to go back at the crack of dawn when the blinds and stands are not out. Date of original unknown, I guess early 70's as Sol e mar is there plus the clothing. However, the chap in the bottom right hand corner looks distinctly like someone many of us know!

Click to see a larger size and click again when you get there for the full size.


View from the top of the steps along Rua 5 de Outubro.


This one was a bit difficult  but I got there in the end. Date of original unknown, although pre-dates any 1960's building. Although some buildings on the skyline can be easily made out, modern building has changed the view a lot.


But this view was impossible to replicate. I suspect it was taken from the church tower or the roof of a nearby building. I have copied an approximation from Google satellite, picking out the two prominent landmarks, the clock tower by the Sol e Mar and the church tower of São Sebastião

You're right Bob.
