Back in Sept Google StreetView got me on the way to work. They finally updated it today
I use to go to street view in front of my wife's restaurant and you could see my Bronco and my wife's old Vette parked. Since the hurricane, they have updated and no cars. (I think it's early in the morning)

But if you go to Goggle maps and do a search for Marianna, Fl, a pic comes up (on the opening page) of our restaurant and in front, is my wife's new Vette. The pic is a couple years old because we have painted and installed some awnings since then.

So I used to play the arcade game of this back as a kid and loved it. Just bought a cartridge for my NES for $12! So pumped!

In some places you can click what I have shown below and it will allow you to access a timeline of old StreetView images, worth a look

You can do that with the actual satellite views too, going back through every scan they've done.

I remember renting that game from Blockbuster back in high school and racking up probably $100 in late charges. My parents weren’t happy. Lol

I remember doing that before, but now mine doesn't have that. Maybe because I have Apple stuff.
You may have to be in full Google Earth for that function. I don't believe Maps has it

In full google earth it doesn't have it either. At least mine doesn't.

Click on "View" and then check off the box "Historical Imagery"



It should show up as a graph in the top left corner with hash marks on different timelines.

On my iPad, there is no "view". It has three lines in the top corner. If you click on them, a bunch of stuff comes up, but nothing about history. There's also a pull-up on the bottom, but nothing seems to load there. Maybe it's supposed to come up there.

....and that's why I hate Apple products. I have two phones, my own is an Android, my work phone is an Iphone. First thing I do when I get out of work is forward every call to my Android. :lolup

The man who designed that P&W R-4360 spent the next two years in therapy.
No doubt...the engineering must have been a nightmare, but 4,360 cu. inches is still a pretty cool design.

From Wiki:
"The Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major is an American 28-cylinder four-row radial piston aircraft engine designed and built during World War II, and the largest-displacement aviation piston engine to be mass-produced in the United States. It was the last of the Pratt & Whitney Wasp family, and the culmination of its maker's piston engine technology, but the war was over before it could power airplanes into combat. It did, however, power many of the last generation of large piston-engined aircraft before turbojets, and equivalent (and superior) horsepower turboprops (such as the Allison T56), supplanted it. Its main rival was the Wright R-3350 Duplex-Cyclone.

The R-4360 was a 28-cylinder four-row air-cooled radial engine. Each row of seven air-cooled cylinders possessed a slight angular offset from the previous, forming a semi-helical arrangement to facilitate effective airflow cooling of the cylinder rows behind them, inspiring the engine's "corncob" nickname. A mechanical supercharger geared at 6.374:1 ratio to engine speed provided forced induction, while the propeller was geared at 0.375:1 so that the tips did not reach inefficient supersonic speeds.

The four row configuration had severe thermal issues that decreased reliability, with an intensive maintenance regime involving frequent replacement of cylinders required as a result. Large cooling flaps were required, which decreased aerodynamic efficiency, putting extra demands on engine power when cooling needs were greatest. Owing in large part to the maintenance requirements of the R-4360, all airplanes equipped with it were hugely expensive to operate and suffered decreased availability. Its commercial application in the Boeing Stratocruiser was unprofitable without government subsidy. Abandonment of the Stratocruiser was almost immediate when jet aircraft became available, while aircraft with smaller powerplants such as the Lockheed Constellation and Douglas DC-6 remained in service well into the jet era.

Engine displacement was 4,362.5 cu in, hence the model designation. Initial models developed 3,000 hp, and later models 3,500 hp. One model that used two large turbochargers in addition to the supercharger delivered 4,300 horsepower. Engines weighed 3,482–3,870 lb, giving a power-to-weight ratio of 1.11 hp/lb.

Wasp Majors were produced between 1944 and 1955; 18,697 were built.

A derivative engine, the Pratt & Whitney R-2180-E Twin Wasp E, was essentially the R-4360 "cut in half". It had two rows of seven cylinders each, and was used on the postwar Saab 90 Scandia airliner."
