Google Street View


Recommended Posts

Recently I've noticed that Google Street shows only the most recent image.
I miss being able to contrast and compare the same view captured over a period of years. It was a valuable tool for determining the approximate construction date of new buildings, and to jog the memory as to what building used to be at a particular locale.
Further, I've found that broken links are increasingly common (for example, the inability to make a virtual turn onto a side street). This can be especially annoying when attempting to find a particular address, only to come to an abrupt stop. Also, the view that appears is often several numbers off from the address requested in the original search.
Is this related to the browser used to access Google Street or is this their new standard?

2 1/2 years later, maybe you found how to do this already :)

click that area, it drops down a timeline, where you can select any of the historic street views taken.
