Google Street View can provide visual history of a place over time

Google Street View was launched in 2007 in several cities in the United States, and has since expanded to include cities and rural areas worldwide.
Maps with areas highlighted in blue support Street View imagery
This feature of Google Maps provides a view of actual images of streets and objects as if you were walking there.

According to Wikipedia, the option to view Street-level imagery from the past has been introduced in 2014. It is only available where Google has imaged a street more than once.

To start viewing Street-level imagery click the Pegman in the bottom right corner. Any roads which have Street View imagery will appear highlighted in blue. Click on a highlighted part of the map to see Street View.

If past imagery is available, there is an overlay in the upper-right corner with the address and Street View date which can be changed to view images over time.
