Bristol City Council launched this site in 2011 with maps of Bristol from 1750 to the present day. Designed primarily to identify the location of places of historic interest and sites illustrated in the Braikenridge Collection, the site has many maps from diffferent times including one aerial photograph, all of which can be enlarged and shown at the same scale. It offers hours of pleasure to anyone wanting to know how places have changed over the years. Although the modern maps cover the whole city, the older ones are only of the central area.
