A Virtual Step Back in Time

Springfield RewindTake a step back in time and immediately jump forward again…that's the fun of www.springfieldrewind.com.  

Springfield Rewind, part of the Look Back Springfield project, has gathered photos (with the help of the Sangamon Valley Collection at Lincoln Library,) to document the ways Springfield has changed over the years.



It's easy to use the site: 

  • Browse by era (1970's for my childhood memories) or by street name or theme
  • Click on the name of the photo you want to see, you will first see the old photo, then move your cursor off the old, and back on to the picture again to see the new photo.
  • You can post a comment or share your ideas for other areas you would like see a "rewind."


Congrats to Russ Friedewald, a Springfield Area Dad, for creating this website to share with Springfield area families past, present and future!  We are adding a link on our class reunion page; former classmates will enjoy a virtual step back in time!
