Historic Maps Of Southwark Published Online

In the running for the year's most cartography-friendly council is Southwark, who last week published a series of historical maps of the borough on their website.

The Ordnance Survey maps, ranging from between 1896 and 1954, are available to view via an interactive browser which, while it might lack the shine and polish of a Google product, is easily navigable. The council has also published high-resolution scanned PDFs of maps from the 16th century onwards, including ancient parish boundaries and maps by such illustrious cartographers as John Rocque and Jacob de la Feuille.
