Those shots are no good, as they show different locations. 1st shot location haven't changed that much - it got tunnel for pedestrians instead of "zebras", tram tracks have been moved a bit towards park, street got wider due to additional lanes, but generally it's the same as then. Same location as seen from plane nowadays (upper-central side of the photo, my neighbourhood on the left):

M7 motorway, when it was half-profile only. It was one-way on Fridays in direcion Lake Balaton, and on Sundays in direction Budapest, to make weekend holiday traffic easyer

True. But that particular part is still exactly the same. (except maybe some more noise barriers and more commercial development alongside the freeway)

Katowice - Chorzowska street (part of DTŚ):

looks like early sixities...


...and here's about 2-3 years ago (one more office building appeared since)




Tenements on the right side of shot 1 were exactly where the crossroad on shot 2 is

I checked every page in this thread and have not found these pictures, so I am quite happy to post them

First, an auxiliary olden days map. Blue arrow shows where, more or less, we are:




Originally this road was built by Germans before WWII to connect Berlin with Upper Silesia. Since border change after war, vast part of it has been left within PRL borders. On the pics, we can see Upper Silesian section which had not been repaved until 2007. Anyway, last I drove on this terribly maintained road in summer 2004 and really regret I did not take any picture of her. Now it is called DK88 and looks like a XXI c. road.







Pictures come from German web page:
http://www.autobahn-online.de/images/gallerie2.html
and were made by Marek Gabzdyl in 2000.

Now:

Yes, it`s nice city, in fact I realy love it but it`s not so beautifle as your awesome capital Budapest. I am realy happy to go there (after 2 weeks) on this thursday.

Btw, big part of old Pressburg`s city was damage/rebuild mostly because of roads and other transport solutions.
