Old-ass Topos (16 Jan 2003 at 16:08)
I also found a site with a bunch of old-ass topological maps. Here's one that's 111 years old of my home town in CT -- I was able to find where my house is (most of the roads are the same!!). The 1914 one has even more detail.

I also found my new house, which is a much tinier pixel on 1907 Pittsburgh Map.

I wonder when "Pittsburg" became "Pittsburgh".

In the time of the English, around the 1750s. Before that it just was a fort, founded by the british, conquered by the french, and then reconquered by the british. Pittsburgh is named after William Pitt, an english minister.

(just happened to read that in an encyclopaedia last week ;) )
