Navigate Victorian London With Awesome Interactive Maps!

Sometimes getting your head in the past is a rough job, but we all love it anyhow, right? Helpfully, it looks as though Mapping London has the answer for those of you who are keen on getting lost in the past…

It would seem that the National Library of Scotland’s map department was kind enough to scan in some very old, very high resolution maps that give us an excellent street-view of London from 1893-1896 (when these maps were being made up). Some of these maps are actually more detailed than modern counterparts, and give you a great idea of how 19th century London was laid out.
