Google Maps in Toronto, the 1858 version
There was a great app showcasing the streets of Toronto that got some press a couple weeks ago. Historical maps are something that are always interesting. It’s incredible to see how a city like Toronto has changed. As a someone in the technology industry it’s also great to see fun projects like this developed about Toronto.
Make sure you explore the app’s full interactivity and pan around.
Here’s the original post to the BlogTO article too.
