Looking at old photographs can give a wealth of historical information and is a good way to get people to enjoy practical history research.
Firstly, research and collect old photographs of your agreed area: use your local record office, Local Studies Library, Museum, the Internet or private collections if you know of them.
Next, Identify the exact locations in the photos using old maps.

Go out in groups of two or three and take modern photos from the same spot.
Use a blown-up copy of the map of the area to compare the photos.
You might want to make sound recordings of the scene as it is today.
You could use 'Then and Now' picture books and sound recordings. Find areas of further research, such as changes in retailing or transport. Think about creating a display or exhibition to attract and interest others.

The idea:

Looking at old photographs can give a wealth of historical information and is a good way to get people to enjoy practical history research

How to do it
Research and collect old photographs of your agreed area: use your local Record office, Local Studies Library, Museum, the internet or private collections if you know of them

Identify the exact locations in the photos using old maps

Go out in groups of 2 and 3 and take modern photos from the same spot

Use a blow up copy of the map of the area to compare the photos

Think about physical changes: buildings, roads, shops, pubs, factories, mills, fields How have institutions changed - hospitals, workhouses, schools?

How have shops and town centres changed?

Think about sensory changes: how have the smells and sounds of the streetscape or village changed - think about horse manure, straw, factory pollution, street vendors, barrel organs?

You might want to make sound recordings of the scene now.

Think about cultural changes - are people interested in the photographer? Do they stop to look? Are there children and women about? Are there people of colour visible in the scene? Do the shops and buildings reflect one culture or many?

Ways you can use the results:
