Reproductions of Old Maps


Recommended Posts

Steve,

If you're interested, I have Large (3+ feet x 5 feet) color maps showing all of the Comstock Lode & Virginia City patented claims. I believe it is one from the 1800's and has been updated with new claims of historic importance and color coded. I will have to look up what we paid to have them made, it was by the square foot on a large-format color laser printer from a reprographic company. Pretty interesting for collectors. We use them as reference for our current gold project (and wall art too).

Still working on those mineral specimen photos too...

Cheers,

Jeff

HI Jeff-

I'm looking for reproductions of the plat maps of specific Nevada ghost towns during their heydays.. I know there's someone out there that was selling these but I lost the source. Not interested in Comstock lode area though. He had plat maps for ghost towns like Rawhide,Goldfield,Rhyolite and many others...

Really looking forward to your photos. Not only great photography but some great specimens too.

This is not completely on point, but try:

www.sanborn.com

They are a company that creates maps that date back to the early 1800's for fire insurance. Some of the old town maps are still available.
