The Museum of London’s iPhone App named ‘Streetmuseum‘, allows you to select a destination from their London map, or use your GPS to locate an image near you. You then hold your camera up to the present day street scene and the same London location appears on your screen, offering you to time travel back to the past, from over 200 sites in the captial. Best of all, it’s free and compatible with iPod Touch and the iPad.
Hundred of images are available that showcase London’s history from the Great Fire of 1666 to the hippy 1960′s.
Notice how it superimposes the past photo over your street view.
A brief history of your location is given. You can be your own tour guide.
We think this app is brilliant.
