The Home of my Great Grandfather

My uncle Jim sent the etching of the street in Denmark where my Great Grandparents lived in the early 1900s. He included a photo that he took of the same street. I have combined them into a nifty little GIF showing the old and new.  The artistic credit goes to Axel Holm, the painter and engraver who created the original etching and to my uncle Jim Christensen who composed the photograph. My claim to fame is the ability to adjust the opacity setting in Photoshop.
