Plate xix from preface of Fire Insurance maps in the Library of Congress

Four maps show the changes that occurred in one city block of Santa Fe, New Mexico, over a forty-seven-year time period. Comparison of the maps reveals the transition from the olive-drab adobe contructionin 1883, to mostly brick construction, indicated by the pink coloring., by 1930 (see color key, p. viii). The nature of the buildings also changed, saloons, billards halls, and dwellings giving way to bank, offices, and post office.
