Historical Film on Google Street View


I think there is something kind of magical about viewing old film clips on top of the modern Street View image of where the movies were shot. I've updated my There and Then historical videos application to try and improve the user interface.

I've also added a few more historical videos. Some highlights of the more recently added videos to the app include a 1960's film of the Vatican and a 1950's film of the Colosseum in Rome.

I'd love to hear what you think about the app, particularly whether you think the user interface is intuitive or a little difficult to understand. So feel free to tell me what you think in the comments.

Hi Clark,

Long time no see. What an outstanding idea. Good to see how a place looked like in the past and how it has evolved since. If you ever develop an API for this please let us know.

Regards,

Alf
