Redditer shystone has some sublime mashups of present-day London with old paintings, Google street view style.
The artist took a variety of old paintings of London and placed them in context against the modern cityscape. Most paintings are from 17th century Italian painter Canaletto and the artist gives you a sense of what was and what is now, to an impressive effect. All the ten mashups are great, but the one with William Logsdail’s 1888 St Martins in the Fields painting, with these pedestrians of yonder-years in the bustling streets, has to be our favorite.
