As the exhibit celebrating the centennial of the City of Davis enters its final weeks on display, we were inspired to add one more piece to it with the following “Then & Now” images of Davis.  The historic images below are from Special Collections and the present day photographs were shot this month by our student assistants, Louis Cashatt and Kristoffer Landes.

We hope that you enjoy using the slider to compare the changes in each view!

Also, be sure to stop in and view the exhibit, Davis 1917-2017: Celebrating 100 Years of Community, in the Shields Library lobby before it ends on June 18.
