More Historical Photos on Google Maps

Twixt Aire & Calder Historical Photos Map

The Twixt Aire and Calder Project in the UK have released a Google Map to showcase their collection of historical photographs of the area.

Images from the Twixt Aire and Calder archive have been plotted on the map close to the location where they were taken. The photogrpahs have been grouped by date and it is possible to select to view photographs on the map by various date ranges.

Each photograph also has an option to view an historical Ordnance Survey map from the same date (or as close as possible) as when the photograph was taken.
