Fellow Miltonists,

Surely some of you have already discovered Google Earth--you can google for it. 
Since London and Cambridge (though not Oxford) are well represented in aerial
photos, it is possible to locate sites there from quite close up.  

1.  Download Google Earth.

2.  At the home page, a picture of the globe with the western hemisphere
showing, go to the upper left to "Local Search."  In the first box, type in,
e.g., "Nelson's Column," and in the second, "London."  Then hit the blue G +
magnifying glass button to the right of the second box, and you will be taken
to London.

3.  Use the clustered arrow keys at the bottom center to center items and the
"+" toggle switch to the left to magnify.  You can magnify in quite
closely to see cars, buses, and even people in Trafalgar Square.

Enjoy!

Jameela
