Portaltic/EP a fan of the Google application has superimposed images in movement of more than 50 years ago about the current layers of Google Street View. It is an external tool to Google Street View, but using their maps. If currently Google Street View allows users to have the feeling to be walking through the streets thanks to the three-dimensional view, a new tool immerses users in London in 1920 or in the Rome of 1950. The tool There and Then inserts older videos in the three-dimensional current Google Street View images. Thus, if users are looking for London Bridge or the Colosseum in Rome to zoom the image appears inserted a video where appears the same monument or street recorded more than 50 years ago.

This tool does not belong to Google. Keir Clarke, the creator of an unofficial blog about so-called Google Google Maps Mania has developed. So far, Clarke has inserted into the current images 18 videos of different recordings. Lambeth Palace Road in London in 1922, where the houses are of the Parliament, the Opera de Paris in 1956, the Piazza Venezia in Rome in 1950 or St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican in 1960 are some of the videos that are mixed with the more modern images from Google Street View. Meanwhile Clarke has posted an entry on his blog where users asked to their opinion about the tool. I love to know what you think about the application, especially if you think that this interface is intuitive or a bit difficult to understand. So that you feel free to say what you think in the comments, says Clarke. Source of the news: A tool allows you to view historic videos on current Google Street View images
