Classic masterpieces in modern Google Street View

Halley Docherty has given us a small glimpse into the world of yesterday with this new series of classic artworks blended with Google Street View images. If you’re a history buff of sorts, these pictures will send tingles up your spine as you delve into the streets of yesteryear. From The River Thames in 1746 and Covent Garden in 1737, to Westminster Abbey in 1749, these images show us just how Europe looked in the 18th and 19th centuries, and how times have changed.
