We’ve seen plenty of strange things within Google’s Street View photography, but this is a new one, at least to me. Have you ever seen Google display a building, reducing it to two dimensions?

Here’s an instance, pointed out on reddit, in which Google appears to have done just that. As redditor disguysdalimit asks, “Where is the side of this building?

If you go down the street in the other direction and look from a different angle, you can also see the other side:

Clearly it’s just a glitch in Google’s not quite seamless Street View imagery, but sometimes the glitches are more interesting than the actual photography.

Here’s another interesting glitch someone also shared on reddit:

Now, look at all these birds on Google’s Street View!
