The Online Historical Map Digitization Project is a rather long and unweildy name for a site that displays scanned maps, mostly from the early 20th century and mostly of Canadian locations. The site boasts a number of interesting maps, including the 1926 Saskatchewan Road Map, the Rand McNally 1924 Indexed Pocket Map Tourists’ and Shippers’ Guide, the Survey of the Dominion of Canada (1904 / 1907) and a number of railway maps (1 and 2). The images are, thankfully, large enough to read onscreen.

    Readers may also be interested in the Great Britain Historical GIS project at www.visionofbritain.org.uk. While the majority of the site is based around census statistics there are also a series of scanned maps that are available as an OGC web map server (http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/maps/index.jsp)

    Although it requires a subscription, Ireland's Historical Mapping Archive may also be of interest. I wrote a brief review of it.
