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. There are also links to the modern equivalent on Street View. Street View images on this site are the copyright of Google. Comments, questions or requests are very welcome, registration is not necessary.

Hounslow, Middlesex, Bath Road c1913
Hounslow, Middlesex, Bath Road c1913. When this photo was taken, the shop next to Ward's Stores had not yet been built. Ward's Stores and the other shops look run-down now. The houses on the right have gone. Postcard by W. H. Applebee of Ashford. Click the postcard to enlarge.
For more old pictures have a look at this week's Sepia Saturday blog.
