The Guardian has put together an insightful collection of images created by overlaying album covers from times past onto current-day Google Street View locations of the places those album cover photographs were taken.

Everybody from The Beatles to Eminem make their way into the collection, and it’s quite interesting to see the contrast between when the photos were originally taken and what those spots look like now.

Take a look at some of our favorites below:


Paul’s Boutique by the Beastie Boys


Willy and the Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival


Moving Pictures by Rush


The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan


Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin


The Marshall Mathers LP by Eminem


Animals by Pink Floyd

Head over to The Guardian to see the whole creative collection of images, and if you’re feeling creative yourself, hunt down some locations on Street View and drop a few creations of your own in the comments!
