Historical Photos and Street View
The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery has created a really interesting gallery comparing historical photographs of Fort Collins with the view as it looks today, as seen on Google Maps Street View.
All the vintage photographs used in the gallery are from the Fort Collins Local History Archive and the Museum Artifact Collections at the Fort Collins Museum. The gallery displays the historical photos side-by-side with the Street View of the same location.
I like the way that the Street Views are displayed in the Fort Collins Museum gallery. Initially the views are displayed as static images and each Street View is only loaded when the user clicks on the static image.
