I noticed this the first time I fired up Google Earth 6 and the Google LatLong blog just highlighted it for me.
In the latest release of the Google’s Google Earth application there are a couple of new features that allow you to see pictures from the past, right there in the window.
Google added a date button to the status bar that will show whenever you zoom in on an area where there is historical imagery available to show.
You can see Silicon Valley in the 1940’s!
One of the highlights of having such a vast image archive from the past is that you can tell your own history, places you’ve been, things you’ve seen that might not be there any more – maybe even look out for things that are now that once weren’t.
