Sometimes I set out with a beautiful photograph of a scene from a hundred years ago - only to notice that it is impossible to retake the picture. Whole Buildings have gotten replaced, trees have grown in front of the scene or a volcano has demolished a gate completely.
To spare others the disappointment I’ll now list my failed attempts. Please join me and list those images that can not be replicated under any circumstances. If the site becomes more popular, photographers will be able to use the search function to check whether their composition has been tried before.

The above images originate from Tropenmuseum.nl and are today inaccessible due to the growth of trees and jungle.
