Looking for Street View images that prove when they were taken

CNET asks its readers to submit Google Street View images that demonstrate when they were taken.

So, to further demonstrate that the world cannot get enough of Google's Street View feature--or at least to demonstrate that I can't move on--I'd like to invite our readers to participate one more time in a gallery, this time by sending in any Street View images that can demonstrate, without question, when the image was taken.

Last week, I asked for your favorite Street View images, and dozens of you responded.

Google's Street View feature lets people see street-level images from several U.S. cities Google

The result? Here.

So, while there could be many ways to prove when an image was taken, some might be a newspaper front page that's visible, or an event that can clearly be dated.

If you can find it, there's a good chance I'll run it in the gallery.

Perhaps I'm the only one who cares about this particular element of this phenomenon, but I hope not.

Please send any submissions to me at daniel.terdiman@cnet.com and put "Street View Date" in the subject line. And please explain your rationale for saying what date the photograph was taken was.

Thank you, world. If there are any good submissions, I'll post a gallery within a day or so.
