stallio:

so google added a new feature to the desktop version of google maps allowing you to “go back in time” in street view and view old street view data (though you might not have it yet; i didn’t get it until a full day after the announcement). 

i got excited by the thought of finally being able to revisit some of the old street view glitches that i’ve found over the years but have been replaced with newer street view data. unfortunately, many of the street view glitches i’d found in san francisco don’t seem to be there. this is conspicuous considering that other data from 2007 is still there, which suggests that google deliberately tried to keep these glitches out of the archive.

but they haven’t caught everything. for example, you can now relive that time back in ‘09 when a maple leaf fell on the street view camera as it drove through indianapolis (shown above).

and of course that glitch town in new york is still there. the google street view van has only ever been there once… never to return
