Bing Maps proves that time travel is possible

I accidentally stumbled across this and had to share it.  This is just for fun.

A couple of years ago when CenturyTel bought Qwest, the football field in Seattle changed its official name from Qwest Field to CenturyLink Field. With the growing popularity of soccer in the US, many people have stopped referring to the stadium as Seahawks Stadium because it is also the home of the Seattle Sounders soccer team.

Open Bing Maps to an aerial view (not the birds eye view), locate the football stadium south of downtown Seattle and zoom in. You will see the newly rebranded CenturyLink Field as a soccer/football field. Keep zooming in and it will magically transform into Qwest Field/Seahawks Stadium and an American football field.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could keep zooming in and see the Kingdome, old underground Seattle and the old steam ship yards?  Seriously, I wonder if some day we’ll be able to not only see a composite satellite  or street side view assembled from photos taken over time, but to also have the option to select the time frame of the images.  Don’t bother comparing it to Google Maps.  Their images of this area are newer and offer no fun transition.

  1. This is great. It appears, however, that you have WAY too much time on your hands. You need to come back to work with us. 😉
