Victorian London

For the historically inclined:

This map superimposes Google maps and Victorian Ordnance survey maps of London circa 1893-1896. I've already found some interesting surprises including a row of houses across the road from my house that was demolished to make room for railway lines some time between then and the 1940s.

Update - I posted this to the little_details comm and got several more recommendations:

1746 and 1869-80 surveys

Scotland (and the rest of the UK) - lots of different maps

OS maps:

Aerial images, 1919-1953:
