Not too long ago, if you will recall, we featured a series of photographs featuring classic album covers superimposed on their respective modern-day Google Street Views by The Guardian. Now, it appears that the folks at the British daily is at it again, with artist Halley Docherty making mash-ups of classic paintings depicting cities in Europe, North America, and Asia and their Google Street View screenshots!
I don’t know about you, but there have been times when – as I sit or stand idly waiting for public transportation on my daily commute, go around on a walk, or visit a place (whether historical or not) for the first time – I wonder how certain places look like during the old days. It seems Halley Docherty had similar thoughts, too, and as a result, put together this fascinating series of photographs depicting classic paintings of city scenes from all over the world superimposed on their modern day Google Street Views.
Check out a few samples below!
Docherty’s work surely is both interesting and insightful, with today’s audience being offered a glimpse of how the places they know very well used to look like centuries ago!
