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.

Aston, West Midlands, Six Ways c1910
Aston, West Midlands, Six Ways circa 1910. Aston is a city within the City of Birmingham, in the West Midlands of England. Six Ways was a major road junction, a thriving hub of activity. It has now been replaced by a dreary roundabout. The only building that has survived from the postcard's period is the gabled building to the centre-right in the Google Street View. Postcard publisher not stated.
