Take a trip to the London of yesteryear with new app

An updated app allows people to step into the London of the past.

Streetmuseum 2.0, originally released in 2010, uses augmented reality technology to overlay historic photographs across whatever a user is looking at in the present day, with 3D options now added.

More than 100 new locations of some of London’s most iconic locations, with photos taken between 1863 and 2003 drawn from the Museum of London’s extensive collection, have been added in the update.

Our collection provides a fabulous visual history of London, across all aspects of London life. Streetmuseum allows these photographs to be seen by a new audience, and in a thrilling context,’ said Anna Sparham, the museum’s curator of photographs.
