Google Street Views Captures Canucks

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Google Street Views vehicle (or bike) can be seen capturing our streets and thoroughfares every now and then, updating its mapping systems. On occasion, the cameras pick up snapshots of daily life and that’s where Street View Funny comes in. They create an archive of some of the rare, odd, or humorous captures created by Google Street Views. This morning, they discovered the Vancouver Canucks in San Jose, hanging out by their bus in a shopping district.

The scene was captured in May of 2011 so that would have been the time that Vancouver was playing San Jose. This has not been confirmed but fans are able to pick out a few of our players from this view.

Street View Funny has also featured Google Maps Street View archives of crimes in progress, wardrobe malfunctions, animals, and people “saluting” the street car camera in various ways. Each week they feature a Top 5 list but you can also search their most popular finds, sorted by date. Note: Some of the content is not suitable for younger audiences.

The last sighting of the Google Street Views cameras locally was at Langara College as they became a part of the Google Campus Mapping project.

Thanks to @StreetViewFunny for sending me a message about this.
