Historypin invites you to dig out, upload and pin your old photos, as well as the stories behind them, onto the Historypin map. Uniquely, the site allows you to layer your old images onto modern Street View scenes, revealing a series of windows into the past.

This “digital time machine” allows people to view and share history in a totally new way using Google Maps and Street View technology.

Historypin aims to become the largest user-generated archive of the world’s historical images and stories.
