33<p> Have a look round what the country looked like in the 1940s. Click on the
34map to the right to start, you can then scroll around and zoom in.  </p>
35
36<p> Whilst looking around, you can tell us about the postcode of where you are
37looking. We want to collect information about where postcodes are now by
38finding them on old maps.</p>
39<p>All you need to do is click on the the point in the map and fill in the
40postcode. Why not add your house, your place of work, and those of your
41friends and family, to help us build a free postcode database?
42There is more detail about why we want to do this in
43the <a href="FAQ.html">FAQ</a>.</p>
