A Reddit user who goes by the name of Shystone has juxtaposed paintings of London from the 18th and 19th centuries with present-day Google Street View images.

We have included Shystone's fascinating commentaries on each scene. See more, including some wonderful Canaletto's Venice collages, at Shystone's gallery page.
