Google Street Views Now Showing Street Numbers

I was playing around with Google Maps the other day and noticed that for my office building, in Street Views, Google is showing the office building number, in a water mark like style above the building.

Here is a picture:

Notice the "2" above the building, I point to it with an arrow above.

You can see it yourself by clicking here.

I am not sure if this is new, but it is useful to know that this building is indeed 2 on that block.

I could be wrong but i just did a test and noticed a similar figure over my neighbors house. It is actually a watermark of when the image was taken "2008"

I also just tested some addresses, because I remember seeing a watermark a few days ago on Maps. I didn't see watermarks on any except one, which read "2007 Google".

Theyre is clearly a (C) symbol before the 2 and and half zero after it. Looks like a bad retouched (C)2008, not your house number :-)
