"Then and Now" exhibit looks back at the past

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- While we were all reflecting back on 2017, the Colorado National Monument was looking way back with their "Then and Now" exhibit.

As an ode to the new year, the exhibit showcased historical pictures of the Monument from the 1930s to the 60s, and what those same locations look like today.

"It is quite a feat to have the 'now' photographs in the exact same spot as the old photographs so you have to do quite a bit of research and look at that photo to figure out where it was taken," said Alicia Lafever, park ranger.

There were about 80 photos in the exhibit donated by the National Parks Service and the Colorado National Monument Association. The next time the photographs will be displayed will be at the Fruita History day in May.
