Fascinating 1896 map and satellite photo comparison of our area

by Ian Yuill on 16 May, 2017

1896 mapThe National Library of Scotland has created an online tool to allow people to see how an area looks in a recent satellite photo compared to a map published in 1896.

Using the blue slider button on the left hand side of the tool’s screen, you can look at the map, the photo or, best of all, a merged combination of both.

The link above will take you to the tool zoomed in on our area but you can of course use it to look elsewhere in Scotland.
