For anyone with London links (or who just loves maps), here is a link to some stunning old maps, free to personal researchers. A couple of them are searchable, and the set covers four centuries.  http://mapco.net/london.htm

There are currently 73 high quality London maps and views displayed on this site.

~ Map Of London 1868, By Edward Weller, F.R.G.S. ~

This is one of the largest maps to be displayed on the MAPCO website. The detail is amazing. Cassell, Petter & Galpin, who had previously published the map in 1863, declared that their “large map of London, as well as being the largest, is universally admitted to be the best map of London ever produced”.

This highly detailed map is on a very large scale of 9” to 1 Statute Mile.
This map has its own domain name:  london1868.com
