What were you doing on Friday

Did you get Google Street Viewed on Sept. 21?

The Google Street View car was in town on Sept 21. Here's a few notable images it took around town.

PHOTO: What were you doing on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012? If you were outside in Revelstoke that day, there’s a chance the Google Street View vehicle got a picture of you. Google Street View recently uploaded Revelstoke. They visited here several years ago, driving through the McDonald’s drive-through before getting back onto the Trans-Canada. This time they drove around most of Revelstoke, except for the Arrow Heights neighbourhood and a few streets here and there. We took a spin around parts of town for interesting sights. Clockwise from top left: Two youths obey the new no-skateboarding signs on the sidewalk by longboarding on the street; this proud Scotsman chose a kilt bearing the Scottish flag to go with his red leggings when he headed out for a cup of coffee; Revelstoke Times Review distribution manager Greg Brownlee is a model cyclist. He rides on the right, wears a helmet and obeys stop signs. Note: the blurred faces are Google’s doing. — Aaron Orlando
