Google Provides A Blast To Seattle's Recent Past

Google recently introduced a new feature to its Maps' Street View, the ability to go back in time.

Immersive, 360 degree views can take you through time, whether you want to see a landmark's construction, a community's reconstruction after a natural disaster, the seasons changing or a neighborhood's evolution. If a clock icon appears on the upper left-hand portion of the Street View image, click on it and toggle through time to see that same place in previous years or seasons.

We took the feature for a little spin to see what a difference five years makes. Given all of the construction going on around Seattle...quite a bit.
