Miscellaneous: Classic album covers, as seen through Google street view!

Three instalments in and we’re still enthused by The Guardian’s street view series, in which a Google Street View specialist takes iconic images and recreates them using everybody’s favourite maps service. This time around they’ve recreated classic album artworks through the service, hunting down the original locations of such covers as The Beatles’ Abbey Road, Bob Dylan’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan and Oasis’ (What’s the Story) Morning Glory. It’s a super-fun project, and a true testament to their specialist’s dedication! I wonder how many hours you’d have to spend staring at your computer screen before you start to visualise that tiny orange man hovering above the pavement as you walk down the road…
