    Default 1848 Map & Liverpool Google Earth View

    1848 OS map for Liverpool [about Canning place & St Thomas's Church] - laid over a recent Google Earth view.

    I'd like to do a few more of these, as I think it's interesting to see the pattern of development in the city - what's left; what was there before; and most importantly - how to preserve for future generations. Right, that's me off my soap-box!

    It'll probably be easier studying the attachment below, as you'll be able to use the zoom facility, to get into the detail.

    Is it me, all I can make out is that some roads have got wider. Great post though.

    Hi Pablo, your right. Some roads have doubled in width. If you look at the edge of the map, where some of the smaller roads are, they match up, as you'd expect with the image. In other case, ie: Park Lane, they kept the east street line and extended west.

    What must have life been like for them people. I'll bet it was vastly different to ours. All we got to worry about is what we gonna do tonight or what do you wanna eat. Betcha they never asked those questions.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
