More historic photo-mashups

At Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, Ed Darrell has found a new set of photographs that relocate historical photographs and then blend them using Photoshop. I've done a little of that myself around UM.

These are especially haunting, as the historic scenes come from WWII Leningrad, a horrific experience that Americans really can't relate to. For example:

Some of his photos seem to blend still-existing buildings perfectly, and I suspect Mr. Larenkov has had to do a small amount of Photoshop fudging to make that work. In my own experiments, I found that just leaning my upper body from side to side or stepping forward or backward could noticeably change angle to the vanishing points. Tricky work.
