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.

Surbiton, Surrey, The Broadway 1913
Surbiton, Surrey, The Broadway 1913. The architecture and character of Surbiton's main shopping street has changed little in the last hundred years. More traffic of course, but it still has a pleasant, unpretentious feel to it. Postcard by W. H. Applebee of Ashford. Click the postcard to enlarge.
