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.

Coddenham, Suffolk, The Live and Let Live Pub, c1908
Coddenham, Suffolk, The Live and Let Live pub, c1908. Coddenham is a small village north of Ipswich. The wonderfully named Live and Let Live pub appears to have closed in 1912. It is now a private house and has presumably been so for a hundred years. The building is clearly ancient. If you open the Google Street View in another window and get closer to the building you can see that it is beautifully decorated on the outside. I'm not sure about the pink paint though. For more old pictures why not visit the Sepia Saturday blog. This postcard was produced by Bedford and Co of Carr Street, Ipswich.
