The all-seeing eye of Google's Street View camera has now photographed London's original highway: The Thames. You can view the city from any point on the river between Richmond and Woolwich, with the usual 360-degree scrolling. Alas, the photography is taken from the middle of the river, so the usual joys of spotting members of the public in strange poses is greatly limited. It is a good way to take a tour of London's most prominent landmarks, however.
