Diachronicity!

OK, so that’s not a word, but if “synchronicity” is a word, and “diachronic” is a word, shouldn’t “diachronicity” be a word, too?

Anyway, here’s a diachronic look at one spot in Paris.  First,  check out an old painting looking from the south bank of the Seine to the north bank by the Louvre:

The same spot today

Pretty great how similar it still looks, eh?
