Using Google Earth Exported Images
It has not been possible to export a dynamic image from Google Earth containing, for example, overlays of the 1842 London map. But I've exported some images which may bridge the gap. The first shows the blue track of my walk from west to east back to my apartment on Saturday. It is successfully overlayed on the 1842 map.
The second image is a zoom of the first in the area of the zoo. It is still possible to see my 2009 track over the 1842 map.
The black slider on the zoom is the new "time line feature of Google Earth 5.0. It permits you to "slide" from earlier information to later information. (But only over the past few years. The historical time lines with Rome, for example, are shown in other ways. )
