On location

A twist on the Sleeveface phenomenon: classic album covers overlaid on Google Street View images of their actual locations. The Beatles' Abbey Road inevitably features, but so too do Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP and PJ Harvey's Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea.

On a related note, a Flickr user called Harvezt has posted a series of pictures called Dark Side Of The Cover in which he or she imagines what iconic album covers might look like from a different (often the opposite) perspective. Abbey Road features again, but the Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and Kraftwerk covers are all better.
