Sanborn Sanborn

We know these thumbnail don't look like much but click on them and be impressed. These detailed 1910 maps of east and west Warsaw are Sanborn Fire Maps, originally created to assist insurance companies assess risk for underwriting fire insurance, hence “fire maps.” The Library of Congress' site for Sanborns is in the process of scanning all of them - in full color. Not all have been scanned as of this writing (August, 2020), but the Library's intent is to eventually bring them online. Stay tuned. Eventually, they should have Sanborns for 1910 and 1927 of Warsaw.
