Christmas is over, wrapping paper has been destroyed, batteries were scourged up and bellies are bigger than usual but we still have a bit of the holiday season to enjoy. It's always nice to look back at the year that just was but even better to see how far we've come too. These pictures show Christmas now and in decades past in the same photo.
Peter Macdiarmid created these composite images of London showing how popular places in London have changed or stayed the same during Christmas time. It's nice to see the decorations, even if it's just in black and white. You can see more of his work here.
