Old book meets new tech

After reading Sean’s post about the awesomeness that is Google Maps, I came across this site where an enterprising Angeleno has taken scans from a 1906 electric coach tour guide of downtown Los Angeles and created a Google Map showing the location of the buildings in the guide. It’s pretty freaking awesome.

The link to the LA Voice article is part 4 of a series; it’s also worth it to check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
