Vintage Maps of Ireland

S Wilson has a nice collection of geo-rectified vintage maps of Ireland. The Historic Maps of Ireland collection includes vintage maps ranging from John Speed's 1610 Map of Ireland up to an 1897 Map of Ireland by Matthews-Northrup.

As well as the vintage maps of Ireland the site also includes collections of Historic Maps of Dublin City and Historic Maps of County Dublin. All the maps can be viewed in separate Google Map pages.

S Wilson has also used the Google Maps API to create a map of Grafton Street showing the names of all the shops, businesses and residents in the street in 1848. The data for the map comes from 'a combination of the Thom's Directory street listing published that year and several maps of the area'.
