Photo Safari #49 - Historic Homes

Blog Blog

Thursday, Apr 12 2012 by

This week we’re doing celebrity homes … sort of. You mission is to find former homes of people from history in Street View. No 20th century celebrities please. Only people born before 1900.

Post your submissions to Street View – Buildings – Misc and Street View – Safari Submissions and you must include an informational link about the building. Please do not include links to the pages about the person who lived there, links to other map submission sites, or celebrity posting sites. Wikipedia pages about the resident are Ok if they include information about the house though. Basically, its about the houses, not the people so document the homes.

The Safari will end at 0700 UTC next Wednesday, March 18 or when the Safari is no longer listed on the Games page.

Good luck and happy hunting!
