Interactive history map of Ampthill

Given we have a few computer techies and local historians on the site I wondered if it may be possible to generate a map of Ampthill on which you could click on a building of and find out what it used to be and is now - eg some of our old pubs, shops and even industrial places!

There is some kind of Google project where you can map historic photos to StreetView. Can't remember what it's called.
