Rightmove launches Then & Now – An interactive journey around World War One Britain

To commemorate 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, Rightmove has created ‘Then & Now’, an interactive journey into the past told through archive photos and Google Street View.


Then & Now lets you merge the past with the present, examining how our streets have evolved from the days of the Great War.


Start the journey now!


When visiting the interactive gallery you will be taken on a journey through time, exploring how some of country’s best-known sites and typical British streets have changed over time.


Using Google Street View technology, Then & Now allows you to not only see how the old photo merges with the modern street, but also fully immerse you in the experience to explore the area as it looks today.




Simply use your mouse to “swipe” across the chosen Street View and reveal an insight into the past, as provided by the Imperial War Museum and other image resources. Clicking on the information icon reveals more about where and when the photo was taken.


In total, 13 photos from the duration of the conflict are used to help tell the story of the First World War on the home front.
