World War II Scenes revived in Modern Google Street view shots

World War II was relatively recent as far as human civilization is concerned, but it can often be difficult to comprehend that the war had in some cases taken place on the very same streets that we walk today. Halley Docherty created this striking series of images by juxtaposing horrific scenes from the Second World War with the same places in the present as shot from Google Street View.

The series shows scenes from crucially important WW2 locations like Berlin, London, Paris, and Hiroshima.
