You can zoom into the maps, or at least you used to be able. I did a great many screen prints and stitched them all back together in Powerpoint to give me a useable map (yes I am mad). I wanted to be able to read all the little notes, particularly the building number. The number of floors and roof material is marked on many of the buildings as well as the use. I'd forgotten that the left side wasn't on the same map as the right. I sometimes stuck the two sides of a road together to work out things like - what was at the end of the street - like Ironmonger Row. I often don't know the modern layout because it's the wrong temporal direction. I start old and work backwards. The aerial photos are also invaluable. It took me ages to spot all the views of particular buildings from each aerial shot. eg I was missing any view of one pub on Greyfriars Lane until I spotted a fuzzy version of it on one photo, just peeking between two taller buildings. Any other angle and it was obscured.

This is my updated picture, there were too many adjustments to make so I redid the whole thing: The currently empty shop to the left of William Hill seems to be the Warners location. Edited by member, 30th Aug 2016 2:14 am
