Panoramic Map of Grand Rapids, 1868 |
Ok, so it's not the Thornapple River. But some of the water came from the Thornapple!
This zoom-able map is fascinating. Find out why they named it "Canal Street"; see if you recognize any other buildings or streets. Can you find the steamboat? Do you see the rafts of logs being taken down river to the lumber factory? I can't resist, can you? Have fun....

The Ultimate Timewasters: Chat-rooms and message boards!
|Quaker Message Board. I waste a lot of time reading here.|
|If you want to go to Yahoo chat, you can find your own way there. Count on getting private messages every five minutes from porno services. Many rude and foul-mouthed patrons. Plug your ears and hide the children.|

|TIM'S DOORS to some fairly clean chat-rooms, where html works and one can post images and colored/sized type. Great fun for creative types.|
|ALTAR ISLAND. A unique experience. If you misbehave in here, SOMEONE will boot you out. So be nice.|
|TALK CITY. The best-monitored chat-rooms on the planet. Foul-mouthed freaks and harrassers are instantly booted. Lots of advertising. Huge assortment of interest groups...genealogy, computers, you name it. This is the place to send your kids if they want to try chat.|
