Interesting. I can tell that they took this at very different times, even slightly different views for the same storefront are months apart in time.

I would not go to that site. It is slow and annoying. It is just accessing the Google APIs and data.

Why not just go to Google Maps and enter your address? It is a lot quicker. As soon as I did this, I had a street view thumbnail of our house. I placed the little yellow guy on the street in front of my house, and instantly could view everything around me. No login required.

Hmmm... from the responses, I'm guessing that many expected that there was another company that had taken pictures of houses all around the world.

No... sorry... the "type slowly" part was for precisely the reason that Camloki described... a vicarious tour of places along the way...

A little "twist" here....
chances are you won't know what the pictured item is...

Three gold stars and an "atta boy" for the first person to identify it, and bonus points for telling how you did it!

What Is It?

An antique version of a corn cob peeler

How Does It Work?

Think about a horse brush (or some dog brushes) where you slip your hand in, and whiz, bang, vroom you’re done. This one works on the same principle, except on corn. It probably doesn’t work very well anymore. I mean, seriously, look at how worn down the teeth are. Besides, do you really want rusty corn?

Do I Really Need It?

Of course not. It’s unlikely you even need a modern version, so this one is simply for decoration. In fact, it is being used as decoration at my parent’s house. If you know my parents and are familiar with their house, we can play a game. I will give one American dollar (yes, an American dollar!) to the first person who knows exactly where this object can be found in said home. You need to be specific… I mean really specific. And, sorry parents of me, you can’t play.

Where Can I Buy My Very Own?

I did a search for antique corn cob peelers, antique corn kernel removers, and other keywords, yet I could not find a version like this for sale anywhere. Perhaps, it really is a dog brush and we’ve just been wrong this entire time? I’d be interested to see if anyone else has any theories.

I need to change my mode of thought.
It was interesting to find my street in other locations. Thanks.

It was interesting to see other places with similar addresses. It eventually showed the front of my house with nothing more than the address number and street typed in.

Now get off of my lawn!
