I've done a couple of overlays of old street maps and I'm willing to try to do some for other people. See the examples at http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile15509/Reading-1883-overlay.htm and http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile15368/Cambridge-1889-overlay.htm to get an idea of what they're like. Please give exact co-ordinates or (better still) a placemark.

Sorry, I should have said this is UK only. I can look to see if other countries are available though, you never know.

Here you go, seems to match up reasonably well. You may notice it doesn't match the Roads overlay particularly well, but they're not especially accurate in the first place so I've mapped to the actual roads instead.
