Ever wonder what Rogers Street looked like in the early 20th Century?  Or what business occupied T.I.S. Books in the 1930s?

This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with the creators of the Bloomington Fading project, Derek Richey and Jennifer Sommer-Richey, about how the city has changed through the years. Their Facebook page juxtaposes historical photos with present day images, and they’ve just authored a book of their findings, Bloomington Then And Now.
