Perhaps the most visible result of last year’s Salt Lake City oil spill was the damage done to Liberty Park both from the initial spill and the cleanup efforts.
The Salt Lake Tribune went back to the places where some of the most striking photos were shot a year ago and took new photographs to compare the area then to now.
The following before-and-after photos can be seen by moving the slider bar in the middle of each photo left or right. The photo on the left is the archive image taken during the spill or its cleanup, while the photo on the right is the same area as seen this week.
