Historical Maps of Toronto
Nathan Ng would like to share with us his newest site. His blog is called Historical Maps of Toronto.
The site is an easy site to use, online collection of notable pre-1900 maps of Toronto. Specific maps that researchers may find of utility include the 1858 Boulton Atlas of the City of Toronto and Vicinity, and the 1860 Tremaine Map of the County of York, Canada West.
He says that “I hope the site will facilitate discovery and exploration, as well as serve as a convenient resource for casual research [It's also enormously fun to randomly browse through]. The site is intended to serve as a companion resource for my previous mapping project, Goad's Atlas of Toronto -- Online!
I would be delighted if you could please share this with anyone who would enjoy it or find it useful as a resource...
I will be using the site when I am called to do research in Toronto.
