My pal Eugene Byrne has provided the script for a local history project in Bristol. You can now get an iPhone app that will take you on a guided tour of Bristol, pointing out areas where the city was changed as a result of the heavy bombing it experienced during the Second World War (Bristol was both a major port and a centre for aircraft production). The idea is to produce something like the guided tour recordings you get in museums, except that it is something you can do yourself out in the city streets. Ideally, of course, you should be in Bristol, but I’m wondering how it would work if you used Google Streetview instead. Eugene has more details on his blog.
