You could print out the photographs side by side for comment, or highlight them on an interactive whiteboard and then present findings as a ‘powerpoint'-type activity. What students find will depend on the photographs, the city, or the timescale they choose. With a city like Sarajevo the obvious changes are in dress, transport and architectural style, whilst the continuities will include war and destruction. The secret is finding, or helping them to find clear and detailed illustrations to work from.
