Along with walking tours, standalone then-and-now photo sets, and virtual museum tours, On This Spot is hosting several photo contests this month to celebrate the national initiative of Culture Days. Our brand new camera feature is available on Apple devices after months of hard work by our development team. It will allow users to seamlessly blend historic photos with their current surroundings.
Today, we are featuring a photo contest in Sault Ste. Marie. Once you have located one of the dozens of On This Spot then-and-now photo locations throughout Sault Ste. Marie, you will be able to use our new augmented reality camera feature to transport yourself to a nineteenth century streetscape or pose with someone from the 1920s. Then, snap a photo!
To win a free print and admission to the Sault Ste. Marie Museum on any Thursday during Culture Days, simply post your blended creations to social media with the hashtag #saultstemarie and tag @on.this.spot, @saultstemarie, and @saultmuseum. This initiative is in partnership with the Sault Ste. Museum, Tourism Sault Ste. Marie, and the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Association.
