Skip to content and H-Net Listserves

September 26, 2011

I recently received the following message on the H-Net listserve H-Urban.

2 Questions: 1) what do you think of the site that Richard Harris is mentioning here?

And 2) What do you think about H-Net and all the listserves there?

Hope you have a nice day/blog!

Subject: WWW/GIS: Historical photos with Google street views

From: Richard Harris

I am curious to know whether people think of this feature as being
useful for research or teaching:

[Ed: This article refers to the website , which
overlays historical photos (uploaded by users) on Google Maps Street
View, to show how streets looked in the past.]
