Photomerge before and after Ford's Theater Washington DC

On April 14th, 1865 President Abraham Lincoln was shot inside Ford’s Theater located at 10 St. NW. The brick facade of the building looks virtually the same 150 years later despite a needed reconstruction circa 1910 and restoration completed in 1968. The theater is operated in a partnership between the National Park Service and the Ford’s Theater Society.

WAMU 88.5, American University Radio, is a well known NPR station where popular programs like  The Diane Rehm Show are produced. The staff of their Metro Connection program contacted me about using the Ford’s Theater historical photomerge as the Web cover image for a segment called “Then and Now”. In most cases I am happy to provide limited rights to post my images online. See an image on FinePhotoGraphics.com you would like to use?
