Then and now, part 2

This is my second part of the report how various parts of Kaunas old town looked few decades ago and how these places looks today. Nearly all old photos I took from autc.lt site (kaunosenamiestis.autc.lt). New photos are my own.

This is one of the iconic views of our old town:

Next photo shows how this place looked in 1967:

In 1961 here was petrol station: )))
