Thanks to Toronto's Nathan Ng, former historical maps buried inside online catalogues at the Toronto Public Library have been unearthed into a clickable format. His historical maps showcases Toronto's first century and vision for the city, delving deep into the city's past. Ng is a map enthusiast with too many maps to count starting back as early as 1787, showing the boundaries of the "Toronto Purchase, an area transferred to Crown ownership by a treaty negotiated between the British and the resident Indians in 1787." He also includes some very cool Toronto Fire Insurance Maps dating back to 1884.
