Then and Now: A view down SongZhi Road, Taipei


Not knowing of any easily accessible repository of historic images of Taipei, I'm making do with some of my own photos from the past few years. Fortunately, the city seems to grow fast enough in a few places for these montages to be decently interesting less than 3 years later.

This is part of the city's Xinyi district viewed from one of Taipei 101's elevated walkways. The 2007 photo shows the Citibank building still under construction, as well as one of the cranes for the now soon-to-be-completed President Hotel tower.
