Daily Dose Pick: SepiaTown

Incorporating antique (we’re talking turn-of-the-last-century) photos and images, mapping site SepiaTown is like an online time capsule of cities around the world.

Users are able to upload historical images of buildings and other locations with precise addresses, so you can see just what the spot you’re standing on looked like 100 years ago. SepiaTown’s Then/Now feature allows you to compare a historical image to the current Google Street View, or you can map historical events, such as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943 or the 1928 UK Suffrage movement.

Start exploring SepiaTown, sign up to upload your own images, get historical background on the SepiaTown blog, see the latest user contributions, and become a fan on Facebook.
