When we recently posted the street signs where Atlantic Avenue meets Commercial Street, it reminded us of a series of “before” and “after” photographs in a new book called Things Change by father / daughter team, Alanna and Gerald Reilly. The father, Gerald, took a series of 35mm black and white photographs back in the 1970’s and his daughter, Alanna, used her iPhone to contrast those places as they appear today. There are over 230 images in the book, published by The Raleigh Press, and available on Amazon.com. With permission of the authors, here is how things have changed at the Atlantic / Commercial merge.
