Earlier this year Paul Reed the military historian was on one of his trips, this one to Germany, the East Front, bits of Leipzig and Berlin were taken in. He started to take photos and post them, doing a remarkable job of lining them up with the originals. So, I sat in Norwich at work and has he did them I lined them up and did the Photoshop honours blending them into these. What’s more remarkable is how well they all fitted together. so here is the full selection we produced between us, via a 4G phone and the internet between Berlin and Norwich. It started as a bit of fun and ended up as quite a nice little set of images.
