The Tulsa City-County Library has released a new iPhone and iPad app that allows users to see many Tulsa streetscapes as they looked 50, 60, even 100 years ago.
The library picked 300 of the best images from its Beryl Ford Collection and put them at your fingertips with the help of local volunteers who helped build and design the app.
“That's how it all came about a lot of hard work from volunteers, and librarians thinking it was cool,” Librarian Jennifer Greb told FOX23 Thursday.
The library already has much of the Beryl Ford Collection available on its website, and wanted more people to be able to use and interact with the photos.
“(We said) how fun would it be to have these images, which are already really popular online, and be able to carry them around with you.”
FOX23 tested the app Thursday. It allowed reporter Adam Paluka to post side by side pictures of various streetscapes from years past and present day on Twitter and Facebook.
While many images are concentrated downtown, the app has pictures from across Tulsa County.
