Just found an awesome website where you can see aerial photos and historical overlays of the areas you live, grew up and frequent from the past to the present time between various aerial photos over time.

http://www.historicaerials.com/

There is a feature where you can use the "Compare" dropdown box to switch or dissolve between 2 different snapshots in time for the target area such as an overlay of what the house you grew up in looked like in 1961 and then in 1995. You just have to pick the year from the list of available years on each side of the screen and then either enter an address or move the viewer to where you want to see. I've grown up and lived in the same area my whole life and am very interested in old buildings, and local historical structures and find this extremely entertaining. I always hated history in school in school, but love it now.... especially local stuff that is less mainstream and hits closer to home.
