An Interactive Map of Charles Dickens' London. After you have had a chance to peruse the map, see then and now pictures or take a quiz about Dickens' London. If you want to see it with your own eyes, take a walking tour. Or if you are daring enough, you can try to virtually survive Dickens' London.

Please do look over the rest of David Perdue's Charles Dickens Page. It has a wealth of information.

I caught smallpox. And cholera. But didn't die.

Good post. The depth and breadth of Perdue's site is quite impressive.

Nice. You might find something at this British Library microsite of maps of London to go with.

Great post—I'm not even a big Dickens fan and I was ensnared by the site! Of course, I can't resist maps that tie in with literature. (I wanted to try surviving but couldn't make the little bastard move, presumably because I don't have an actual mouse.)
