Britain, Historypin, Postcard

HP: High Street, Camberley

I pinned a 1950’s real photo postcard of High Street, Camberley in Surrey to Historypin.  If you’ve not seen how old photographs can be superimposed on top of a modern Google Streetview this is a good example. Tip: hover your mouse over the fader bar along the bottom edge of the photo and slide it down to reveal the modern street scene.

The buildings in the foreground on the left are intact but you’ll find new builds further down the street, and of course many of the privately owned shops have been replaced by the High Street chains.
