Useful Sites For Writers - MAPCO


When you need to know which road your highwayman is working.
This site has a large collection of old maps online. Unlike other map images these are scaled large enough to be useful for a jobbing author if they want to know whether their character turns left or right to get where they want to go.

It's mostly London with some British regional maps and some of Australia (lots of Sydney) and I have a horrible feeling the site might be dead or in hiatus - so use it while you can and see if you can donate something if it proves useful.

So if you're writing steampunk from your college dorm in UC Berkeley or curious about how old the street you live on might be - this site is for you.
