Number 26 through Google-time

I found a really cool feature on Google Maps last week. It’s their Streetview but as a timeline. I often like to go into Streetview and see when the Google car last went by (and if our curtains are looking OK..). On discovery of this feature I was able to time-travel back to way before we bought the place (back 7 years to 2008) and check out the changes.

There isn’t a huge amount of surface difference, and it’s amazing what the sunshine does to make a place look better. But I can see the porch before the new windows went in, and the tree stump that is squatting in our front patio in its former glory as a massive tree!

Here’s hoping the next time the Google car passes, it will look better still!
