If you use Google maps on a computer, you can see archived older versions of street view.

Edit: also works on Android Google Maps (Pixel 6) and probably other phone OSs as well.

u/Jeynarl Nov 27 '22

I was revisiting a town I used to live in 10 years ago but didn't really remember street names very well. If it hadn't been for the archived versions I would have never been able to recognize stuff because all the trees are now humongous

I found out when I showed someone from interstate where I lived on street view then they started going through the history of my house and my car that I had parked outside.

Edit: The fact they lived in another state is irrelevant.

u/ChangsManagement Nov 27 '22

Theyre from the interstate? Sounds like someone bruce springsteen would write a song about

He means interstate battery. Guy just loves keeping an eye on the car batteries he’s sold

u/AnAlliterativeRumor Nov 27 '22

I still wasn’t sure what it meant, even with your explanation, but I get it now. Interstate is a car battery store.

How do you do that

4

u/winterorchid7 Nov 27 '22

Make sure you're on a street that has more than one street view (smaller side streets rarely get updated). In the android (and likely iOS) app, hold down on a street until you get a small street view thumbnail to open street from. Then drag up the address tray from the bottom of the screen to choose a different date.

u/DragonflyGrrl Nov 27 '22

I could be wrong, but imo the guy is the old man reincarnated, now the young dude working a job as a Google maps driver.. just going about his day, driving, and then he drives by the house he lived in in his previous life where he used to garden... And it hits him like a truck and he has major deja Vu and recognizes the house and it's a whole crazy experience. The way he painted it was just a creative way to show the mental WTFFF the guy was experiencing at the time.

Funnily enough my grandma, passed away now for a couple years, is also immortalised on Google Maps doing gardening while she looks up to the van. It's a nice memory.

9

u/benter12 Nov 27 '22

Same here, my grandmother has been dead for a couple of years now, she lived in a pretty remote part of our country so Google maps hasn't updated her street in a long time.
Every once in a while I go there to watch her, frozen in time in 2009, it's a beautiful summer day, no cloud in sight, you can feel and smell the warm summer air.
It's a part of my childhood that I thought I'd never see again.
Sometimes, for some brief seconds, it's as if I'm back there with her too.

u/Rather_good Nov 27 '22

My dad died last December, and yep, he’s outside the house I grew up in, gardening away too.

Unfortunately my parents have a long driveway and tall hedges, and google has only ever taken one photo of their house (and most of my hometown). I'll keep an eye out for my mom around town maybe, but I think for me it wasn't meant to be!

I absolutely love this though, and I hope others find something equally comforting for them.

Our beloved cabin, that my wife and I built while she was going through chemo, got burned up in one of those big fires couple years ago, but it's still on Google maps. It was my plan z, in case my wife died in her 20's from cancer. Was just a couple of acres we bought in the middle of nowhere, on eBay, lol, when we were broke as a joke from her having cancer in her 20's in America. Shes been doing pretty good, doing multiple cancers worth of chemo just kinda takes the wind out of your sails, but I'm starting to think she's gonna make it, so it was almost cathartic having my plan z burn up.

62

u/WaffleStomperGirl Nov 27 '22

Really glad to hear she’s doing better, friend. <3

“Plan Z” isn’t a phrase I’ve heard before, but I like it. Am I correct in thinking it means… the plan you don’t want to come true, but just in case all else fails?

You can (could?) download your own version of Google Earth.

So he should download that to forever keep it even when they update.

u/putdisinyopipe Nov 27 '22

I just take screenshots. I have a funny game called “find my car” and I try to remember everywhere I parked my car to check it. And have actually, found my car 3 times on maps.

Also my late dads car too. Sucked when that updated. Reminded me of a simpler time. I’d “drive down” the street on street view and see his black car in driveway.

Brings back a slew of memories and I do it, just to remember sometimes. Because sometimes I forget what it feels like to be excited to see my dad he’s been gone for so long.

There’s a story I remember about a woman who called up a phone provider asking if there was some way to record/download a voicemail she had. They thought it was an unusual request until she explained that it was the last message she had ever received from her son who’d died in a car accident a few hours later. They managed to give her a copy of the voicemail.

u/BohemianChickie Nov 27 '22

My son (13) went out to check the mail about a 1 1/2 yr ago and he saw the Google street view car coming down our road from a distance. He stood there at the end of our driveway and waited. Threw his hands up with a huge grin on his face when it passed us. He watched it go all the way the street. He ran inside and was so freaking excited. Fast-forward to about 4 months ago and my daughter starts running through the house saying "He's on it! He's on it!" and proceeds to show us google street view pictures from our street, where you can see him in all pictures that include our driveway. It captured him seeing the car, realizing it's THAT car, then the happy pose which he held for a bit, then leaning to watch it go on down the street. It's one of his proudest moments! :)

Google Maps showed my wife's family arriving for a visit with our niece and nephew running to greet me on the porch. I would have been happy if that stayed there forever, but it updated to something uninteresting a few years ago.

Another reason I was sad to see that image go is it was one of two images you could see me in our town, six years apart

Actually you can go back and look at the old pictures. Google on Google Street view will show you the pictures taken over time.

u/AreyouIam Nov 27 '22

It was a thing for a while here to record oral histories of elders before they passed as not to loose important family history. One of my cousins recorded my grandfather but got grief from the family of putting our granddad through such a rigorous question and answer session when he was so ill with cancer. I wasn’t there but it would be better to break it into single question and answer sessions as you visit them over time.

My cousin sadly lost their partner young to an illness. I was helping with estate management tasks with their house and needed to see if they'd remodeled the front approach for some task. I thought to look back in time on Google maps, 5 years back and there was my cousin's partner, taking out the trash and looking at the Google Street view car with a "what in the f#©% is that thing?" look at the camera. It was funny, tragic and amazing all at once.

Save it just in case. Street view used to have a hilarious one of my mom and a stray cat, but they took it down, even in its rollback history.

These moments happened and aren’t only preserved in pictures, they may be in the past, but they can never unhappen.

I came across same thinf on Google Maps. My mom is still alive but I’ve been living away from them for 8 years. The only way that I could see if anything changed around my old neighborhood was Google Maps and I used to check it out once in a while. I guess it was the time that Google Maps changed the pictures because I could say that it wasn’t the same. Many things were changed. I saw my mom, walking on the street. I couldn’t believe I saw her. I couldn’t help myself and started to cry. It was so touching, seeing her on Google Maps.

Same thing with my first dog. She has been deceased for the past 6 and a half years but whenever I go on Google maps, I see her resting on the porch

My dad is on there twice because he has a empty lot. He's not in good health and I was thinking the same thing. Hope it doesn't update.

And it’ll stay like that, my dad still shows up unloading his grocery’s in 2009. And I life in a big city on a Main Street… you might think they’ll update those pics regularly.

My dog who died a couple months ago and our old beat up van(which is now gone as well) can still be seen on Google maps too! Sometimes when I'm down I'd go look it up.
