For those of you with a father-in-law who gives directions using old, no longer existing landmarks, this is just the ticket! The Street View feature in Google Maps has been around so long that they have several years worth of data, and now you can see what your neighborhood used to look like! The actual website is google.com/maps. Once you search the desired address, on the bottom right of the screen, there is a little yellow man. Click and drag him to the map. That loads the “Street View”...a view of the address as seen from a car's point of view. A gray box appears in the upper left that shows your address...in that box is a red circle that says “NEW!”. Click on it and be transported back in time!
