New website for maps of St Croix

Readers who have an interest in the mapping of the Caribbean and its many islands will find it worthwhile to check out this new website with the disarming name: Windmills of St. Croix (  The site explores the history and function of windmills in sugar production on this island; more importantly for H-Maps members, it also lists and describes the more than 30 historic maps of the island, making it a useful addition to the carto-bibliography of the Caribbean.  Do have a look!
