AHhhhhhh yep that is actually a great joke too. I'm actually more surprised I installed Bing without hesitation. Try searching for old maps of Madison its like a needle in a haystack to find anything you can read and don't have to pay for. I did assume he meant airplane photos but I was just like click click click page page page download download download, G. Earth has a slider, figured at the very least I would find the slider on Bing, its not a stand alone app though its part of internet explorer even on 3d. G. Earth has a standalone version of Earth as well as a browser version, G. Earth's browser version doesn't have the slider, all Bing kept giving me was the browser, I was like, what is up. Being very busy I was just like, where's the slider because I would like to see some older photos.
I did find some old maps that I didn't have to buy that do show old Madison, though in the 1800's a lot of the neighborhoods are still called Ward 1, Ward 2 and don't say the street name. But the say what business was where, apparently. There used to be a fairground on the south side of L. Mendota, no street names, but roughly around the UW area. I just want to see where stuff used to be. I really do think that was a good joke now that I look at it more closely
