Maps

March 23, 2012

I have always loved maps, mostly old maps. They can be of anywhere, although the more I know about the history of a place, the more interesting it is that it was captured in time.  I have just found the maps that have been georeferenced (old and new maps lined up so you can go from old to new or vice-versa) by the British Library

The house I grew up in is on an 1810 map of Pembrokeshire but the Cardiff map doesn’t extend far enough to see where I live now although the house should have been built by then.

What I would really like is a map where you can scroll through time and see the development of the railways, roads, houses etc. If anyone knows of one then send me the link.
