UK Google Maps Mashup Roundup Part 6

British Library: "London: A Life in Google Maps" - The British Library has a great virtual exhibition currently running that "..charts the growth of the city by looking at maps of it through the ages. The exhibition is broken down into seven themes, each broadly covering a different period in the city's history. Many of the maps featured in the exhibition are available to view online, via our Collect Britain website. We've created a Google Map of London to help you find them." [Via The Map Room]

eBay Motors + Google Maps UK - A mashup that plots the physical locations of cars that are currently on offer through eBay UK. Search for cars based on a wide list of criteria or by tagcloud. [via]
