Classic album covers in Google Street View – in pictures

From Pink Floyd to PJ Harvey, our Street View specialist shows us the world’s cities through the lens of famous album covers

(What’s the Story) Morning Glory by Oasis. This 1995 Britpop classic was shot on Berwick Street in London’s Soho, what was then an, um, oasis of record shops. Sister Ray, seen on the left, is still going strong today
Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea by PJ Harvey. Shot in Times Square, New York, in 2000. Harvey manages to look cool despite wearing sunglasses at night as she crosses 7th Avenue
Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin. The East Village residential blocks on St Mark’s Place, New York, remain virtually identical to how they looked in the 1970s, with the exception of some more physical graffiti
