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.

Teddington, Middlesex, Church Road c1920
Postcard published by R. J. Johns of Tooting. Curiously, rival postcard publisher Richard Young ran his business from a premises in Church Road, though it is likely that this photo was taken after Young had moved to the Isle of Wight in about 1920. The children in this postcard all appear to be playing some kind of team game.
