What about the difference between these two images of the city of Dublin. Both are ca. 1900. The first one altered, or not? Any guesses why, if yes?

If it's not altered, that horse pulling the trolly mid left is headed to the glue factory, cuz horse legs don't bend like that. They should get extra for him because he looks like he might have 5 hooves.

One of those pictures is 1890 and the other is 1900. They went from horse pulled trolleys to electric trolleys. The dating is incorrect. I am impressed with newly built church front on the right side, to the right of whatever idiots are on that massive statue. Sometimes we get it right...

It would be interesting to find a photo of the construction in progress. There are so many photographs of that specific area, but I foubt we will find construction.

And the far right row of the buildings in the first image appears drawn to me. Just like those clouds.

Excellent example of how they were using photoshop to make images appear older than they are! Amazing!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against the theory, those images look doctored as f**k for sure but I think we should avoid the term 'photoshop' as it tend to refer to some "avanced" technology while these kind of editings were already totally possible with good "old school techniques" including hand drawing.

You'll learn to know me, I'm oftetimes kind of devil's advocate :) What I'm thinking about here is the day you'll want to expose your theory to skeptics or non-conspiration-friendly people. The lone use of the word 'photoshop' could be the trigger to block their mind and they'll just stop listen to whatever you have to say.

Nice to meet you. that just wouldn't be sufficient for the scope of the manipulation we are seeing. the brand name photo shop was created in 1988. but it seems illogical to think that this was the first program of its kind. It is simply the version for the public. I don't feel out of line suggesting that the manipulation of images to appear old happened around the same time that these image manipulating Software was being developed.

I think the public gets technology about 50 years after it's been developed. I've seen things in old (and not so old) movies that didn't exist supposedly at the time but are now starting to come out. I believe Hollyweird has access to stuff or, at least, ideas of existing stuff that the rest of us don't get to know about. Advanced photographic techniques would be right up their alley. Maybe Hollyweird agrees to keep pumping out the propaganda if they can get some of their ideas from the tech not available to the public?

1st image has certainly undergone some drawing and darkroom manipulation. Many Photoshop tricks derive directly from the traditional darkroom, hence all the same terminology. O'Connell Street certainly went through some massive changes over a short period it seems, this image purported to be be from 1928 shows a complete re structure of the building mid right and certainly the rooftops.

Maybe part of the reason it was doctored to show horses pulling the vehicles was to cover up wireless energy devices, such as this:
