We've all seen vintage pictures of various locations at the Jersey Shore. But this really cool site lays historic photos over current day Google Street View images.

The site is called What Was There. You simply go to the site, type in your town or area of interest and it will give you a bunch of old-school photos that in some cases go back one hundred years or more!

What Was Here

Even better, if you have old photos, you can share them on the site.

Without a doubt, the best feature of What Was Here is how they overlay the old pic and the Google Street View image of the exact same place. Brilliant!

For example, here's a picture from 1915 of The League of Women Voters campaigning in Long Branch!
