Google Time-Warp

I’ve always been disappointed when checking Google satellite pictures of Stevenage as they would only go so far and then you would get a message saying no images are available. Well today being stuck home with “man flu” I checked and finally there are pictures. Only problem they are ancient given I changed my car in Dec ’99 they have got to be before that. Apart from my bright red car what else is missing. Well Asda, Tescos’ petrol station is back in the more sensible place, the Tip is back and if you want to show where the Arts centre is don’t bother as it was only a gleam in the architects eye when this satellite flew over
Roariing Meg as it was and as it now is on Google Maps
