A new series of visual mash-ups proves that in London, history is alive in every corner.

Reddit user shystone recently mashed up paintings of London from the 18th and 19th centuries with their modern-day settings in Google Street View. The results encompass several popular landmarks, including Westminster Abbey and the River Thames. Like the film rendition of "London, Then and Now," shystone’s work offers clever insight into how much (or little) London has changed.
