Abstract
 
Large scale maps for cities in Missouri, Arkansas and Kentucky, produced by the Sanborn Map Company of Pelham, New York, originally for use by fire insurance companies and underwriters.  Maps show the size, shape and construction of residential and commercial buildings, and indicate the presence of fire walls, sprinklers, windows and doors, and indicate roofing and construction material.  Additionally, they provide street names and widths, house and block numbers, property boundaries, and building use.
