Neat Map Feature - Overlay Ordnance Survey Maps

Hello All -

If you are like myself and really like old maps and how they compare to today, then this is for you.

I was looking at the historical maps from the National Library of Scotland online and found their townplan map section - they offer Ordnance Survey town maps from Aberdeen to Wigtown with most Scottish towns in between. The years range from 1847-1895. What is exciting about this feature is that it allows you to overlay the old map with the new current map from Google. See the weblink below and have fun with this great tool - really fascinating to say the least.
