The Bucklen Livery (horse stable) was originally located at 117 E. Lexington Ave. Several businesses occupied the space including a bowling alley before it was demolished in 1979. The location today is a private parking lot.

Historical Photomerge is my spin on the traditional “then-and-now” photo concept. Normally you might see photos of the same location side by side, sometimes from slightly different angles. Historical Photomerge seamlessly weaves together a historical archival photograph with a modern one to produce a thought provoking image.

Historical Photomerge is ideal for a smartphone or cellphone walking tour. Images are also useful for historic preservation by showing both the history and future potential of an endangered property.
