13 Then and Now Photos of Famous Cities Showing How Much They’ve Changed

The world is changing every minute, although sometimes it’s hard to notice it. Globalization is the driving force behind modern times. Some of the world’s most famous cities have changed drastically over the decades. For example, a little bit more than 50 years ago, Dubai was just a small town in the middle of nowhere, whereas today, it’s one of the most progressive cities in the world.
