    I love reading about history and looking at old photographs. When I searched for Japan in the 1960′s, I came across this site which has some photos of Tokyo from the 1960′s and 1980′s. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=237551

    By looking at the photos you can tell immediately how advanced Japan was and still is ahead of every country (maybe only South Korea is as equal). Even the quality of the camera used to take the pictures is remarkable.

    Part of me wishes I was alive in those eras and able to enjoy the culture back then.

    If anyone wishes to post some of their favourite photos of Japan, past or present, feel free to do so.

    Man, I love stuff like that :D I love seeing how the “commoners” lived in more recent eras (as opposed to Victorian, Edwardian, etc.). My local area in the 80s/90s/early 00s is the most interesting to me, but other places and anything 20th century are also fascinating :D It’s not often you get to see such quality photographs of people just going about their everyday lives.

    “Part of me wishes I was alive in those eras and able to enjoy the culture back then.” – if I had a time machine, I’d share it with you buddy… *sigh*

    That has to be the sexiest train I’ve ever seen (last 1960s picture posted).

    @ Michael
    I love noticing the differences too. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Those pics of Japan live up to that statement. Other countries/cities from the past fascinate me too. I’d share that time machine with you and go back to the past :D

    @ ghoul
    That train is sexy. Better than any train I’ve seen in real life.
