I came across an article that I thought was pretty cool. It took a bunch of classic album covers and put them in their exact surroundings in Google Street View.
Check it out!
Paul’s Boutique (1989)- Beastie Boys. Ludlow & Rivington, New York.
Moving Pictures (1981) – Rush. Ontario Legislature in Toronto.
Animals (1977) – Pink Floyd. Wandsworth, London.
The Marshall Mathers LP (2000) – Eminem. In front of his childhood home in Detroit, just down the street from 8-Mile.
Abbey Road (1969) – The Beatles. London. After the album was released, the London council had to repaint the wall next to the crosswalk every three months to cover fans’ graffiti, and the street signs had to be mounted high above the ground because otherwise they’d just keep getting stolen.
(What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) – Oasis. Berwick St, London.
Physical Graffiti (1975) – Led Zeppelin. St Mark’s Place, New York.
The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan (1963) – Bob Dylan. Jones St, New York. (That’s 22-year-old Bob with his at-the-time girlfriend.)
