London Ontario on Historypin

Historypin

Historypin is a website that lets you see historical images that are "pinned" to their geographic location on an interactive map.

Find London's Local Historic Sites on Historypin.

Historypin allows you to take one of the tours that have been created to highlight London's History: The Walking Guide to Historic Sites in London; and the Walking Tour of Dundas St.

Many thanks to the members of the Historic Sites Committee of the London Public Library Board who have worked tirelessly over the years to research and recognize London's History. Scroll down on this site to find The Walking Guide to Historic Sites in London which is their work and is also available in print at the library and online via our website.  We also appreciate the support that the Friends of London Public Library have provided to our local history digitization project.
