                            Birmingham Then and Now: A Photographic History

SMCB Member Bob Siewert retired from General Motors after 52 years.  Bob then applied that dedication to one of his hobbies, photography  

 

He has entered the "Our Town Art Show" 22 times, where 29 of his photos were selected for display.

 

While a volunteer at the Birmingham History Museum, he undertook a year-long project researching 56 photos taken of central Birmingham in 1939 and then matching those photos to over 500 recently taken pictures.  

 

His talk is the outcome of that massive effort.
