It is quite remarkable the amount of wonderful old resources one can find on the internet. Today’s find was a map of Versailles from 1746, including the place, gardens and surrounding farmland. It still blows my mind that twenty years ago you had to physically go to Europe and visit the library to see this kind of image and now it’s at your fingertips in seconds.
