These images are so full of pathos, beauty and poignancy, the ghosts of the tragic past wandering around the modern city. Loads more here.
These incredible Retrographs were created by Segei Larenkov. They juxtapose images from the Siege of Leningrad against the modern day city.

The site that posted these images How to be a Retronaut is fast becoming one of my favourite places at the moment, check out Beautiful colour shots of the streets of Dublin 50 years ago... and Rare 1903 film of London's streets... for example. I'd advise not visiting the site unless you're prepared to be there awhile, many, many interesting things to see.
