Time Traveling in Street View
Now that Google Maps are offering you the chance to go back in time and re-visit updated Street View imagery I thought it might be an appropriate moment to remind you of my own Street View time-traveling map.
There and Then superimposes vintage film footage on top of Street View to help transport you back to a different age. Using the map you can view vintage film of 1930's San Francisco, London in the 1920's and New York in the 1900's. The map also includes a number of other vintage videos from locations across the globe, all of which you can view on the same scene today - as captured by Google Maps Street View.
