Streets of Sydney 1832

One of the more interesting GLAM things I learned about is this map of Sydney from 1832. It is part of the dictionary  of Sydney and it is a contemporary map based on an old map.

There are many maps in many museums and, this is one of the best ways of giving objects in a museum a location that is based in time.

This is just a exercise at the beginning of the project to see how it can be done. but the eventual idea is to be able to build up layer and layers of them - over time.
