Sanborn Insurance Maps were used by insurers throughout the 19th and 20th Centuries to help assess fire liability, and while there are valuable in a utilitarian sense, they are also beautiful; instantly recognizable for their distinctively detailed and beautifully ornate lettering on their title pages.
This art print is created from portions of a Sanborn map of Grand Rapids from 1888.
