Thought this was pretty cool. A photographer found some old postcards, matchbooks, etc of high class resorts from the Poconos & Catskills in the 1950s & 1960s, then superimposed them with what they look like today. Here's a sample:

The once-grand scenes now faded into the long lost past; some of the visual elements remind me a little of my favorite movie of recent years: Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel
