I don't know how to do it
but layers with a redspot or arrowe
added over the photo as background might do it
you see it on professional map sites all the time
Location: B37 5BX United Kingdom
Grid ref: SP168868 Postcode district: B37 5xx (map centre)
X: 416900m Y: 286900m
Lat: 52:28:47N (52.4797) Lon: 1:45:10W (-1.7528)
"view source" reveals how they do it
if you click on the little camrera icon
it looks even better
"mouse over " shows the street names too
