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.

Earlsfield Station, South West London, c1910
Earlsfield Station, South West London, circa 1910. Earlsfield Station appears to have changed little in the last hundred years. The modest entrance is out of sight in the top postcard, it is actually just past the bridges. The station has very recently had a make-over and a lift to the platforms has been added. Postcard by a local publisher who signed the back 'J.H.E' (I suspect J.H.E. is the shop on the left of the picture). Underneath the Google Street View is a view of the station platforms with a train passing through, posted in December 1908. Finally, a view of the station from the other side of the bridges, showing the entrance, published by Keystone Art Co of Norwood in about 1910. For more old photographs visit Sepia Saturday. As always, click the postcards to enlarge.
