Antique photographs... or are they?

I recently found this photograph in an old family archive which depicts the M6 way back in 1884. Of course the motorway was very different back then, only horse drawn carts were allowed after the ox-cart disaster of 1881...
Actually no of course this is a manipulated photo from a slightly more recent 2009, though the photo is a scanned 110 film photograph i took with my Kodak Instamatic so is rather retro anyway. I manipulated it using an interesting app i've just got called VintageScene which is well worth a play with. The original of this photo can be seen here, it shows the M6 alongside the Tame Valley Canal.
