Same subject, same perspective, big contrast



For Jackson McQuigg, the most fascinating thing about an article Saturday on the prospect of the Tampa Park Apartments becoming a prospective site for a Tampa Bay Rays stadium was the photo.

It was an aerial shot made in 2010. But McQuigg saw that it was taken from nearly the same angle as a photo shot in the 1920s for the Tampa Chamber of Commerce. The earlier photo was taken from a long-gone gas storage tank east of Tampa's Union Station, he said.

"Tampa sure has changed a lot since then," McQuigg, the vice president of the Friends of Tampa Union Station, said in an email.
