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.

Bedfont, Middlesex, Staines Road, The Black Dog c1930
Bedfont, Middlesex, Staines Road, The Black Dog circa 1930. The old Black Dog pub you see in the postcard was pulled down and replaced by a stylish modern building in 1968. The replacement pub (pictured in 1975 below by Ed Ashmore and shown from the opposite direction) was pulled down in the early 1990s and we are left with the sight we see here in the Google Street View - some flats, a car park and a car repair garage.
