How cool is this?
Similar to the iPhone app created for the London History Museum, this website allows you to place images from a bygone age directly onto street view.
In the studio we spent a few hours looking at local landmarks, but the leith walk cobbles are fantastic.
Check out historypin
Historypin was created by the social movement We Are What We Do, in partnership with Google.
We Are What We Do is a global social movement that creates ideas, products and tools that make it easy for people to make a difference to big social and environmental issues.
Historypin is one in a series of projects created as part of We Are What We Do's campaign to get generations talking more, sharing more and coming together more often.
There has been a major trend in different generations spending less time together. Which is a shame. Old people know stuff young people don't. And young people know stuff old people don't.
While they're using Historypin, a lot of young people will be asking older people for photos, and a lot of older people will be asking young people when to click and when to double click.
Historypin is a global project. It was launched in London in June 2010 and in the next few years there will be Historypin events and projects held all over the world.
