Old London Maps

There are a number of sites hosting high resolution jpegs of old London maps. MAPCO has about 12 of them dating from 1560 to the end of the nineteenth century. MAPCO’s self-proclaimed intention is “to provide genealogists, students and historians with free access to high quality scans of rare and beautiful antique maps and views.”

However, Old London Maps has a similar but smaller collection of maps, focusing on London and dating from 1658 to 1872.

Cartographer's heaven.....
