Classic Music Album Covers Seen Through Google Street View

The concept is as simple as it is novel: namely, using Google Street View to revisit the modern-day settings formerly showcased via iconic album covers. The result is a series of visual mashups, captured by http://theguardian.com/cities/gallery/2014/apr/07/classic-album-covers-in-google-street-view-in-pictures” target=”_blank”>The Guardian‘s Halley Docherty, that depicts “the world’s cities through the lens of famous album covers.” Those locations include 99 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side, seen on the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique; Berwick Street in London’s Soho on the cover of Oasis’ (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?; Jones Street in the West Village from The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan; and the Beatles’ Abbey Road. Check out more covers below.
