Then and Now

My post about Bela Lugosi, combined with some old Lugoj postcards I recently came across, got me thinking about the town's history. It was really a bustling little community through the turn of the century, being the prefecture of Caras-Severin county (since then, however, the county lines were redrawn, and Lugoj became part of Timis county).

Below is an example of an old photo of Lugoj which, as you can see, I tried to replicate.

Very interesting. Do you have more postcard pictures? Maybe the day the bridge was open would be interesting to see. I'm sure there was some celebration, maybe with Eiffel himself.
