SINCE it launched in the US a decade ago, Google Street View cameras have captured much of the Western world and beyond.

And in cities such as Edinburgh, where the Google team has performed multiple shoots, the historical view function allows us to effectively peel back the veneer of time, viewing images stretching back into what is now a different era. Like a fine whisky, it’s a function that is guaranteed to get better with age.
