Interactive map of today and yesterday

Recommended Posts

This is a really good site. It shows a modern Google map satellite with an original 25" OS map of 1892. It places the old OS map in a circle and you can move around the entire area of Sheffield, plus presumably elsewhere, and see precisely where things were. It's really accurate so when an old building or other structure has survived till the present day, then it will overlay it precisely. 

I have been using it to map out the boundary of Sheffield Park. Locate old farms and other features. I found it on a link on the Friends of Sheffield Castle website.
