Sanborn Fire Insurance Map Typography

I found these old typographic gems on BibliOdyssey. These are title pages, headings and letterforms clipped, cropped and isolated from maps and map publications issued between about 1880 and 1920 done by D. A. Sanborn, a young surveyor from Somerville. Really dig the one for Washington. So much ornament.
