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.

Norton St. Philip, Somerset, The George Inn c1910
Norton St Philip, Somerset, The George Inn circa 1910. Situated in Norton St. Philip near Bath, The George Inn is one of the oldest in the country. A grade one listed building, it hasn't changed much in the last hundred years. The little window above the sign has gone though. The landlord at the time of the postcard was Thomas Edgar Dando, born 1877. I think the two men in the doorway are carrying fishing rods. The publisher of this postcard, Young & Co of Teddington has wrongly called it Ye Olde George. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
