And that weird apartment building stood alone in a field for a decade.
Something’s not right…
Last week I posted the destruction of a home so I decided to switch it up and show the development of a business. These images start in 2007 and end last year. O’Reilly Auto Parts bought the location in 2011 and continues to serve the community.
This 1900 double family dwelling has been in the same family since 1970.
There goes the porch.
Since I spend approximately 75% of my life browsing Google Maps I’m starting a collection of images I think are interesting enough to share. This isn’t the first project using Google as the medium and I am largely inspired by Doug Rickard’s A New American Picture project, though I do hold opinions about Rickard “recreating” these Google images with his own camera. But that’s a different conversation.
I plan on using street view and overhead maps to note upon landscape evolution, far corners of the world (which I do believe is a globe), and local interesting scenes.
Here’s my first post in this project. The Qaanaaq Airport in northwestern Greenland. Qaanaaq has, according to Wikipedia, a population of 656 people. The local population was forcibly relocated to Qaanaaq from the areas from Pituffik and Dundras to the north in 1953 when the US expanded their military activity in the area during the Cold War.
