  1. Locating London’s Past

    Amazingly good versions of the 1746 Rocque map of London, and the first (1869-80) OS map. All fully tiled, zoomable searchable, etc. The mapping methodology page makes me glad I never tried this. (via @agpublic)

  2. LRB · Jenny Diski · Toxic Lozenges

    About how common arsenic poisoning (both murder and accidental) was, mainly in the 19th century. Fascinating.

  3. Westminster City Council - The Life and Loves of a Victorian Clerk

    Least inspiring implementation yet of realtime-historical-diary-online? No RSS, links, weblog view. Does have pictures though. And pointless generic “Was this useful?” block.

  4. The Diary of a Nobody, as a daily weblog

    From ‘Punch’ magazine in 1888.

  5. 493. South Park, San Francisco.

    South Park around 1860 or 1870. One of many great old photos on this University of California site.
