History Pin - Canada'a History comes alive

Help build an online photo scrapbook of your town

This could be a fun and informative project for a Socials class. There is also a great teacher resource page and a video clip explaining how it all works.

History Pin is an award-winning new project from the non-profit company We Are What We Do. This online collection contains historical photos that are "pinned" to their geographical location and then overlaid with their modern images utilizing Google Street View technology. History Pin has partnered with several large museums and archives to begin their collection, but users can also upload their photos, write stories and create collections and theme tours.
