Historical Map Collections

Historic Map Works has a great collection of antique maps, most of which can be viewed via a Google Maps interface.

The historic maps are overlaid on Google Maps. An opacity slider allows the user to adjust the transparency, so that the historical map can be compared to the modern map view underneath.
