“This web-site has a collection of old maps that will be an aid to Genealogists and Local Historians. The maps are scanned from various Baedeker Guidebooks that were published before 1939.

Published in the times before the automobile was commonplace, the maps appearing on this web-site give a view of parts of Europe and America before the urban sprawl of the 20th century. Each town map shows details such as major buildings, major roads, streets (some named), and railways. The environs maps show less detail.”

Currently available:

Great Britain, 1910
London and its Environs, 1905
Spain and Portugal, 1901
The United States, 1909
