Launched in June 2010, the Historypin site states that it aims to become the largest user-generated archive of the world’s historical images and stories. Using Google Maps and Street View technology, users can upload and pin their own old photos, as well as the stories behind them, onto the Historypin map. Old photographs can be layered onto modern Street View scenes.

It’s a global project, but it would be great to get some more historic photos of Portsmouth on the site.
