16th Century Maps overlay at Google maps + Rough Guide to everything

The historical Rough Guide to everywhere: 16th century book mapping major cities is reprinted | Mail Online:
London: The Tower of London can be see in the east of the city while the lack of development south of the Thames, which has only one bridge, is also obvious

The course of the Thames is all that remains the same as the city has expanded south of the river
"The reprinted book contains bird's eye view maps of every major European city at the time, as well as maps from cities in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The maps are part of a complete reprint of the 363 colour plates designed by Franz Hogenberg and annotated by Geog Braun - both renowned geographers and cartographers."
