Travel back in time with Google Street View

Travel back in time with Google Street View

Google Maps is at it again!

I've told you about the different places you can travel with Google Street View, like the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest, the Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat.

You can see famous works of art superimposed on their Google Maps counterparts, and even explore underwater!

So what has Google come up with this time? Google is investing in time travel! But not in the H.G. Wells or Doc Brown kind of time travel.

Google can offer you glimpses of what the current Google Street View looked like dating back to 2007. Since Google is constantly updating their maps, you can easily take a stroll down memory lane with their image comparison.

"If you see a clock icon in the upper left-hand portion of a Street View image, click on it and move the slider through time and select a thumbnail to see that same place in previous years or seasons."

And just like that, you can go back in time! Check out different countries through every season of the year, and see the before and after effects of natural disasters and construction projects. You won't believe how much the world has changed in just seven years!
