Victorian London mapped

Lee Jackson, author of Victorian London-set novels and the awesome Dictionary of Victorian London, has produced a new map of the nineteenth-century city. Local points of interest include Nunhead Cemetery, Greenwich Foot Tunnel and Greenwich Fair; but there's lots more to discover, so go and take a look!

(Thanks to Londonist for the link.)

Update: the map is no more (click the original link for a full explanation) - but I'd still highly recommend the Dictionary of Victorian London, which has plenty of other maps, and Lee's blog, The Cat's Meat Shop.
