You can also click on Explore the map on the Historypin home page and then type in an Auckland location (specifying NZ) into the ‘find content near’ search box e.g. Takapuna, New Zealand. Click on search and once the location has come up, you can zoom in and out using the plus and minus slider bar and click on any pinned images that you are interested in. This will give you access to Auckland Libraries content and content pinned by others users to that location.
Those images, which have a yellow Street View symbol enable you to compare modern day imagery with archival scenes. It's like time travel from your armchair! Watch as the different colours and film textures whizz by and transport you to times in the past.
Photographs from around the Auckland region featuring royal tours have even made it into 'Pinning the Queen's History', a special collection created by Historypin to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.
Hope you enjoy!
