Reading pins down new online history

It is always good when something orginal happens close to home so, it this report from the Reading Post is really exciting. As the report states  “Reading will become the first place in the world to create an online history of itself as part of a remarkable new project… members of the public are being urged to take part by uploading their own contributions.The idea is to use Google Streetview,  to allow members of the public to look at current street scenes overlaid with historical pictures and videos.

It is hoped that “over the next few months, thousands of people from across the town will be adding photos, stories and recollections to the archive and all of this will be brought to life at an exhibition at Reading Museum from September to January and on” It would be really great if some of you could get involved with this.
