Street view now lets you look back in time.
A new feature in Googles Street View lets you look back at past imagery to see how a place has changed.
To use the feature just open up a Street View scene, and look for the box in the upper-left corner. If it shows a slider to go back to previous years, you’re in business.

Now with Street View, you can see a landmark’s growth from the ground up, like the Freedom Tower in New York City or the 2014 World Cup Stadium in Fortaleza, Brazil. This new feature can also serve as a digital timeline of recent history, like the reconstruction after the devastating 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Onagawa, Japan. You can even experience different seasons and see what it would be like to cruise Italian roadways in both summer and winter.
