  2. Sometimes, when I’m watching an older movie or TV show, I’ll catch sight of a street sign or other landmark. So I’ll go and find the same spot in Google Street View, just to see what the spot looks like now. Here’s a scene from a 1970 episode of Adam-12 (S-3, E-6) that features a 7-year-old Jodie Foster (Taxi Driver, Foxes) and Coleen Gray (Kiss of Death, Nightmare Alley). The intersection is Whipple Street and Riverton Avenue. They had much cooler cars back then.
