Modern Streets, Old Crimes

Photographer and historian for the New York Press Photographers Association Marc Hermann created a series of photos photos which mash-up  current photos with New York Daily News crime scene images. Albeit morbid in some instances, these are pretty dang clever.

(Above) Resident Enda Egbert on her window ledge in conflict with policemen as they try to get her to climb back in. Brooklyn, 1942.

(Above) Firefighters at the Elkins Paper & Twine Co attempting to contain a fire which took the lives of six. Manhattan, 1958.

(Above) The scene of a stolen car which crashed into a light pole. Brooklyn, 1957.
