Historypin

That's Peter and Joan Udell, with their kids Christopher and Jennifer, under the Brooklyn Bridge back in December 1969, neatly superimposed on the current Google Street View by the website Historypin, which pins old photos on their current locations for nifty "new v. old" juxtapositions. There's also your obligatory Times Square kissing couple pinup, and hundreds more all over the world. It's like SepiaTown, but more virtual reality-y. (TheDailyWhat)
