Still exploring the site myself, so I don't have much else to add yet. Just thought I would share the link with fellow CartoTalkers. Enjoy!

I am the CEO of Enlighten, the company behind WhatWasThere. To be clear both WhatWasThere and HistoryPin were in development simultaneously and neither knew of the other's existence. HistoryPin launched initially in June 2010 and we launched initially in October 2010. While both sites are establishing a historical photograph database, each site has a slightly different perspective. We actually know the HistoryPin folks and are trying to work together with them on certain aspects of the market. Additionally, there are other sites out there similar to both ours as well.
I encourage you to explore our site a bit and see what you think. We are constantly developing new features and functions and welcome your suggestions.
I love it!
There goes my day.
Ironically, I just ran into an identical website called historypin.com.
I am thinking that whatwasthere.com is a copycat.

I would greatly encourage your team to work on the ability to upload/reference historic maps as well.
