The Portsmouth History Map

The Portsmouth History Picture Map is a really beautiful looking map of historical Portsmouth. The map includes an historical map overlay of the city from 1896, as well as historical photographs of the city.

I particularly like the custom map markers, combining circular historical photos with an accompanying text label. The map itself contains information about important historical locations in the city and some of the city's historically important citizens. It is also possible to view on the map over 200 vintage photographs that help to illustrate the history of Portsmouth.
