From here to then

by

Wish you could see what your favorite neighborhood in your favorite city looked like at the turn-of-the-century? A new collaborative project called SepiaTown can make that possible. SepiaTown a project that allows registered users to upload historical photographs of their favorite city, index them to Google Maps and show you a “then and now” picture of your favorite city. The makers of SepiaTown think of it as “a time machine. SepiaTown lets you use your computer or mobile device to see what the very spot you’re standing on looked like decades or centuries ago.” Registered SepiaTown users (anyone can register) can upload, map, and share historical images (film and audio coming soon) from any given location and time period with other users around the world. SepiaTown is free and content is completely user generated.
