Google Earth Experiment

Just trying out embedding Google Maps street views in a blog post. I don't have Hemingway's address handy but Gertrude Stein's address is well known, and preserved, so let's if it shows up.

Yep, it does:

Not much of a view. Let's see what the street looks like:

Wow! This is the street that Hemingway would walk to get to Stein's apartment. He learned much from her about art and writing, before they would turn on each other. In A Moveable Feast, it's clear he was quite fond of her in those days and his portrait of her makes that clear though he hints of the later coldness between the two.

Let's see if I can get another address from the book.
