Old postcards from the early 20th century, compared to the same view shown on Google Street View today. The postcards come from my own collection. Almost all of them are from England, mainly showing West London, Middlesex, Surrey, Berks and Bucks. Click on the postcards to see enlarged versions. Street View images are the copyright of Google. Comments, questions or requests are welcome. If you repost my images on other websites (such as Facebook) please include a link to my original post.

Lane End, Buckinghamshire c1912
Lane End is to the west of High Wycombe. The tall building in the centre of the picture has a sign on the front that says 'Lane End Temperance Hotel 1899'.
Lane End now. You can still see the temperance hotel sign if you zoom in.
