Re: Google Street View

Some not very main roads as well.  My house is on there, which is on a side road of a side road, if that makes any sense!

Re: Google Street View

It looks like they have got all of my area, even little closes.  It was all taken Easter last year.  I checked out the date on the poster outside my Church!

Re: Google Street View

Just noticed that my car has some special edition branding which has blurred out. You probably wouldn't have noticed it anyway.
But they must be paying someone to check every picture and blur logo's etc...
