Before There Was Google Maps...
Go to the Library of Congress's Panographic Maps Collection. See if you can find your town; then your neighborhood or street. I live on a bend in the road, so I can find my house with ease, even though the Asheville maps do not have a north-south orientation. It's all about the river!
When I was helping clean out my parents' house, there was a mailing tube in a closet. I opened it up and there was a poster size map of Saint Cloud, Minnesota, circa 1869. Sweet! Enough of this - Back to work!
