Mapping Historic Ajax

I decided to try out Google My Maps to create a miniature Ajax Timescapes. This consists of notable DIL-era buildings, memorable shops and schools, and buildings and spots which still exist today, and residents remember fondly. A big part of remembering places in Ajax is imagining the community back then through a geographical perspective. Maps are helpful in asking questions about how a town has changed throughout the years, especially since many residents recall their experiences growing up in Ajax through changes in its geographic makeup, buildings, and boundaries.
