The composite image below is made up of a photo of Plumtree Church taken from the south-east in about 1900 and a similar view taken in 2016. Note that this page may be slow to load and you may need to refresh the page before the images appear.
Click and drag the slider to compare the two images.
The main differences are the amount of greenery on the south wall in the old photo, and the appearance of the lamppost rescued from the old Trent Bridge in the new photo.

The composite image below is made up of a photo of the interior of Plumtree church (taken from a glass negative from about 1900) and the same scene today. Click and drag the slider on the left to compare the two images.
The main differences are the gas lamps in the old photo and the radiator at the back of the church on the modern photo.
The candelabra are the same in both photos, but seem to be lower down in the 1900 photo, presumably to make the candles easy to light (nowadays we use a stepladder).
