Historypin is a collaborative digital archive which allows users to view historic photographs in relation to their location on Google Maps. The Archives has created a Historypin channel and is pinning historic photographs of our community online. Compare streetscapes of Lambton’s past with its present and see unusual photos from our collection all on Historypin!
