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.

Bramley Village, Surrey, c1913
Bramley Village, Surrey, circa 1913. Bramley is a village a few miles south of Guildford. In this postcard we can see the A. C. Sociable car belonging to the photographer that I featured last week in this post. The Jolly Farmer is still in business. The diagonal line you can see on the postcard is a scratch on the negative. The young girl in the centre of the picture makes this ordinary postcard quite charming. Postcard by W. H. Applebee. Click the picture to enlarge.
