From my own city (Tilburg) it is hard to find good photos from around 1990. Though there wasn't much at that time. The city I visit quite often with quite a good skyline is Rotterdam. The most striking example is from the Wilhelminapier as it looked until the 1980's (photo by De Snor in 2007, I'll only give the link)

And then Rivaille posted this photo - from about the change of years between 2015 and 2016 (sorry for the buildings on the forefront, I should make some photos myself instead of linking):

The most important things are the Erasmusbrug, Montevideo, New Orleans, Maastoren and De Rotterdam but there's happened much more.

Dubai

Dubai's growth is unbelievable! The lonely WTC in the 80s-90s is hard to find in the skyline of 2015!


1980-1990
