1823 map overlay on Sheffield City Centre 

Part of John Leather's 1823 map of Sheffield,  matched (almost) to the 2018 Google Earth image with a slider by Smardt Apps..try it and see where our hidden rivers are, and why Sheffield Station almost floats!

And here below is another image pair showing the 1894 map of Broadfield Road, before it joined up with Rufford Road  just below Abbeydale Cinema and the latest aerial  view .  Slide to compare 126 years later.
