History?

170509-130311-17JEH

The Dress Factory, the ???, and now The Dance Academy and the Quick Print Center.  I wonder when the original building was built and how many uses it has had over the years?  If I were to get ambitious enough and looked for old pictures and looked up the history of individual buildings, I could put together a book of the history of some of them within Hanover, PA. along with my street views of how they look now.

Another concept for a photo book might be to pick a block and just record the views of it now.  A major problem with these ideas is “what blocks?”, “how many blocks/books?”, “what buildings?”, etc.

Those are ideas if I were interested in history and wanted to take the time to pursue it.  But, that also brings up the question: “Are many people interested in history anymore?”  History seems to be an interest of the past.  Think about that.  How much history is taught in schools now?  Not as much as in the past.  People now seem only to live for the moment.  They give little thought to the past or the future.  Lack of thought about the future gives me a lot more concern.  That is what scares me.
