    Default Google Street View of the Past

    Saw a thread like this on SSP, thought it would be interesting what changes you guys could find since street view first started.

    In the top left corner when you're in street view, it has a thing that says "Street view-Date", to the left of that is a clock symbol with a drop down arrow, click that and all the different photos that have previously been taken will pop up. You can see it in the screenshots I took.

    ^^ I'm still extremely ****** off with what they did to the Bank of Montreal building. The 2015 picture is a major downgrade.

    I wish they kept the light standards in the 2007 photo as well.
    Edmonton first, everything else second.

    Great thread. The improvements in all of those shots are amazing. 108 st and Jasper Ave has been transformed along with 114 st in the university area.

    I used to live in City Square Towers on the 28th floor, from there I viewed the Airplanes flying low enough that we could see and believe it or not, actually wave to the passengers!
    Somehwere in my amassed photos I have one of this rare occurance.

    Thanks for the memories, as I do not live in Edmonton presently.
