Google Street View: How to get links

Jerry asked: "How do I make links to Google StreetView images?"

When you go into Google Maps and find the StreetView image you like, click the "Link to this page" text above the top right corner of the map. Google Maps will reload, and the link URL will now be in the address bar of your browser. That's the text at the top of your browser that begins with Highlight the URL -- the link text -- and copy with Ctrl-C. Then paste that link of your winning location in your comment to the StreetView contest.
