An Essex photographer has dusted down some old photos to bring the past back to life.
Mark Pilling has brought a unique perspective to Southend-on-Sea by holding up images of days gone by perfectly in front of buildings as they look today.
And the end result? A snapshot of how life used to be in the seaside town.
The process was painstaking and involved a very steady hand.
But it was worth it, Mark has now created a collection of time travel photos.
