Street View UK - Now in Aberdeen

Recommended Posts

Been trying to work out when these were taken.

Going past the Fire Station on Anderson Drive shows the new station is still under construction (Fire Station N Anderson Drive - Google Maps) and according to the GFRS website the station was officially opened on the 8th Dec 2008.

From memory i'm fairly sure it was opened pretty quickly after being completed so i'm guessing these pics must be from around Oct 08. Anyone got any other rough estimates?

Last summer I reckon....

Well here's my old flat:

I know it was when I lived there cos those are my plants in the window. I moved out of there in August last year, so it must have been before then. Plus the flowers outside suggest summer.

My brother in that picture is wearing a Dark Knight t-shirt, which he got for his birthday in July last year. Also, his hair is a fuck load shorted than it is now. I'm guessing August '08.

Yeah roundabout October, the portacabins went in November

Just seen Rathen's post. So because we're such legends, we know it was either July or August last year.

We are legends. I can also add this:

The new Holiday Inn at the Exhibition Centre was still being built (though looks almost complete) and that opened in September.

Yeah, by the state of the new station, you are about right ( I work for GFRS and spent plenty time taking photos of the new station, I will check and get a more accurate date)

I found myself parking my car outside my house. It's well spooky like.

Yup, middle/latter third of last year would be my guess - Again, construction work at the end of my road gave it away.

I see they have updated the Aberdeen aerial photos as well - For the last couple of years, I have had a very impressive looking washing on the line in my garden, which is gone now.

I've given up trying to find streets/houses etc.

I'm trying to find me. On a map of the ENTIRE WORLD, I'm trying to pinpoint myself.

Am I at work?! At Home? Walking around town!? I guess...I will never fucking know. Ever.

Nah, no different to someone walking down the road.

In fact, people probably see more of my house by walking past it than you see on this. They have fuzzed out our car number plates so I couldn't give a flying fraggle.

I've already found one car registration they haven't blanked out. It's remarkably close to Teabags' brother although...I doubt those two facts are related.

I figure where my car is will probably give away my location.

My car isn't parked at my old flat, or at my girlfriends, so it'll probably either be at my new flat or at my work, but I can't check because they haven't done the city centre yet. Lazy cunts.

Looks like they've only got the a few European countries, US, Australia and Japan. They should do some more, I feel like exploring.

Anyone have any privacy issues with this latest "innovation"?

I've spent the last 20 minutes zooming into the windows of people I know. Nothing exciting to report as of yet.

On a slightly less sinister note, my friend's reg plate wasn't blurred.
