A lot can change in a short amount of time, especially after a natural disaster has occurred. Two pictures before and after an event happens can really tell a story and show how fast the changes can happen over a period of time. Two pictures can also show us how human beings have impacted the way that a city or a terrain looks. We have collected a bunch of pictures that will show you how the world has changed over the years.

A lot can happen over a matter of two centuries as you can see here in the city of Rysstad in Norway. The terrain was rough and underdeveloped in the past but fast forward to 2013 and you will see that people have settled in the area and built it up well.
