Remember Google Maps? That program which worked pretty well, and thus became outdated? LOL, technology.

Akos Papp is an art director from New York who has reworked actual Google Maps images to look like vintage postcards. Above views from presumably boring looking industrial sites, are faded and made to look like flashy 1950s properties, with Modernist squares and swirls fitting together in a perfect grid.
