Travel Back in Time with Google Street View

Pictured above is a scene from Gillette, Wyoming—one of the fastest growing towns in Wyoming—as it was captured by a Google Street View car in February of 2022.

And here is the same streetside in September of 2007.

A lot changed in those fifteen years to this town and many others. Timeout reports that Google is celebrating fifteen years of the Google Street View service by revealing those changes to the public in an easily accessible format of the 220 billion images the service has compiled.

To look back in time, open Google Maps on a desktop computer. Drag the little yellow human Street View figure onto the desired location. Then click on the timestamp for the image in the upper left corner to access the date slider.
