Take a Google Maps Tour of London 100 Years Ago

Historic London is a brand new interactive project that allows users to browse a Google Maps version of London 100 years ago, placing old photos of famous locations in the English capital next to Google Street View images of how they look now.

The project enables users to get a clearer image of just how much the city has transformed over the course of the past century, and how its modern redevelopment has integrated with its historic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace

Take a look at the Google Maps tour below:
